The Eagle Lake fire, which was 1 kilometre southeast of Pollywag Lake, was called out Monday, said Cariboo Fire Centre information officer Emily Epp.
“It was 1.86 hectares in size and we had 13 firefighters and a helicopter working on it over the weekend.”
Since Thursday, BC Wildfire Service personnel responded to six new fires in the Cariboo Fire Centre.
“All were small, lightning-caused fires with the largest being the Pollywag Lake fire and a 1.2 hectare fire near Hanceville. Thirteen firefighters worked on the fire near Hanceville over the weekend and it was out on Sunday,” Epp added.
The rest of the six new fires were 0.01 hectares in size and only two are still being worked on by crews; the rest are out at this time.
The two remaining active fires are by Crooked Lake and north of Gotchen Lake.
