Work Continues Against Fire Near Galena Bay

The Southeast Fire Centre provided another update on a fire near Galena Bay, today.

Fire Information Officer Carlee Kachman has details on Wednesday's action on that fire "We still have 16 personnel today, two helicopters, and two pieces of heavy equipment punching guard in. There was a little bit of growth experienced uphill overnight, but we do not have a updated size at this time due to the low visibility."

That fire forced an Evacuation Alert for Galena Bay locals on Saturday.

Kachman noted this morning that the fire is still about 169 hectares in size.

A map of the Evacuation Alert area, and details on how to prepare during this warning is available via this link.

Further updates on this Alert are likely to come later today.
