One Shuswap wildfire has been put out and removed from the BC Wildfire Service map.
As of 3:45 p.m. Aug. 11, the Beach Bay wildfire, which was discovered the same day at 9:30 a.m. has been declared out.
The Columbia Shuswap Regional District shared an update stating the Beach Bay fire had been removed from the BC Wildfire dashboard, meaning it is no longer considered a threat.
The other smaller fire in the region, the Angle Mountain wildfire across from the Shuswap Lake Narrows, is still classified as being held at 0.09 hectares.
Both fires are suspected to have started from lighting strikes that came with thunderstorm activity on Aug. 9.
Information will be updated as it becomes available.
