Firefighters continue work on weekend fires
Firefighters with Yukon Wildland Fire Management are continuing work today on a number of fires that were ignited by lightning over the weekend.
“Nine firefighters are onsite this morning on the fire burning 35 kilometres north of Lake Laberge,” said Yukon Duty Officer Catherine Spence. “Fortunately, the fire received some precipitation yesterday and that prevented it from growing further. Suppression efforts will continue today and it is expected the fire will be extinguished in the next few days.”
