Crews from the Williams Lake Fire Department respond to grass fires burning on either side of Tolko’s Lakeview log yard just after noon Thursday.

The larger fire was along the train tracks travelling toward the river valley while other smaller fires appeared to be set above the log yard along a trail below Westridge.

Blocked access to the area was an issue for the firefighters in trucks, while other crews walked into the area above the log yard where several other fires appeared to be set.
