Controlled burn sparks blaze near Clinton, B.C.
Aug. 3, 2017, Kamloops, B.C. - A spokesman for British Columbia's wildfire service says crews accidentally sparked a blaze while burning off fuel in order to contain one of many fires raging across the province's Interior. Kevin Skrepnek says embers ignited a nearby hillside as part of a controlled burn Tuesday against the 840-square-kilometre Elephant Hill fire, about 80 kilometres west of Kamloops. Skrepnek says conditions appeared ideal until the winds shifted dramatically, blowing them west. CTV News reports. | READ MORE
