A small fire in the Duck Lake area near Powell River on Tuesday, July 16, was put out by a member of the public, according to the Coastal Fire Centre.
Fire information officer Dorothy Jakobsen said the Duck Lake situation was characterized as a grass fire, which a good Samaritan stomped out and poured water on.
“We responded to a little fire at that location and when we arrived it was out,” said Jakobsen. “There was no threat to the forest whatsoever.”
A crew arrived at around 3 pm, looked around, cleaned it up, and made sure there was no heat or anything going on, added Jakobsen.
The online BC wildfire dashboard lists the fire as having started on Tuesday, July 16. It is suspected that the fire was human-caused.
The fire was located near the bridge on Duck Lake Forestry Service Road.
