Cooler temperatures have slowed Nohomin Creek wildfire activity, but they’re not out of the woods yet

Despite cool weather, the fires are not yet out of the forest as temperatures are expected to rise

Fire activity at the Nohomin Creek bushfires has decreased in recent days as temperatures have dropped.

The fires now cover over 3,745 hectares, with the Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park being the most active. The south, east, and northeast flanks currently show no active fire action.

Ground crews at BC Wildfire Services are currently having a hard time dealing with flames burning on sheer cliffs and rocky outcrops. They organize the grounds and air force, working with Lytton First Nation and BC Parks to manage the park’s boundaries.

Temperatures have cooled in recent days but are expected to rise again to similar unseasonal conditions experienced in late July.

The fire is still under investigation and is believed to be man-made.
