Unattended campfire to blame for Kitimat wildfire

A campfire near the riverbank is thought to be the culprit of a forest fire near Kitimat.

Kitimat residents may smell smoke over a few days after a nearby wildfire just beyond the Strawberry Meadows subdivision.

An unattended campfire is the likely source of the one hectare blaze.

BC Forest Fire crews are still assessing any hot spots this morning.
