The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch is keeping an eye on a forest fire that broke out earlier this week 30 kilometres west of Tumbler Ridge.
The blaze is visible from the community of 3,000 people 403 kilometres north of Prince George as well as from Highway 29.
It is also 2.5 kilometres uphill from a gas plant, "but it is not expected that the fire will grow in the direction of the gas plant," fire information officer Jillian Kelsh said in a press release.
As of Wednesday afternoon it was covering about five hectares and was expected to grow but was not threatening anything of value.
"Due to dangerous terrain and a lack of safe accessibility, the fire is currently considered a modified response fire... If the fire reaches a point where crews are able to access it safely, then suppression will occur on this fire," Kelsh said.
