A small fire discovered late into last weekend is being monitored by BC Wildfire Service.
On Sunday, Aug. 20 at 5:58 p.m., BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) identified a fire at the 25-kilometre mark along the Blomley Creek Forest Service Road, northeast of Barriere.
In a Monday, Aug. 21 update sent at 11:42 a.m., the fire was classified as out of control and was sitting at 1.1 hectares. It was believed to have started from natural causes.
The Blomley Creek blaze is just south of the 137-hectare fire burning at North Saskum Lake, which was last updated by BCWS on Thursday, Aug. 17.
Both wildfires are located north of the Bush Creek East wildfire, which has triggered evacuation alerts and orders and ripped through North Shuswap communities.
Neither of these smaller fires have any attached evacuation notices.
