CSRD Fire Services is reporting that a spot fire was attacked by crews in the Grandview Bench area last night and continues to be monitored by BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) this morning.

The Violet Creek fire (K42522), which started last night, August 9, near the Larch Hills Forest Service Road, was quickly acted on by the Ranchero-Deep Creek Fire Department and the BC Wildfire Service.

The Ranchero-Deep Creek department also credits quick action from local residents who managed to get water on the fire early on. The firefighting response included a BCWS helicopter and ground crews.

We want to thank everyone who took action to protect our area. The Shuswap Emergency Program will continue to check in with BCWS on the status of this fire.
