Kingfisher Creek fire held

The Kingfisher Creek wildfire southeast of Sicamous that was spotted Monday is now classified as "held."

The estimated 0.8 Ha. fire was likely started by lightning, a rep from the Kamloops Fire Centre arm of the BC Wildfire Service said.

"Fifteen personnel are responding today and are being supported by some heavy equipment on site," the spokesperson said. "The cause is suspected lightning at this time as a result of some storm cells that rolled through the area over the weekend."

The Semlin fire east of Cache Creek is now under control at 41 Ha. There were no other starts reported over the long weekend in the Kamloops Fire Centre.
