Skimmers continue dropping water on Premier Lake wildfire

Boaters on the lake as well as the public are being asked to move away from Premier Lake as the skimmers collect water to fight the wildfire.

As of Friday morning, the wildfire is estimated at 4.1-hectares.

“No structures are currently threatened,” said the BC Wildfire Service.

Skimmers and airtankers have been dropping water on the blaze in an attempt to fully control and extinguish the wildfire.
