Shovel Lake (R11498), part of the Babine Complex, Northwest Fire Centre.
This fire is impacting CSTC communities Stellat’en First Nation and Nadleh Whut’en.
Location: 6.7 km north of Endako
Status: 50, 831 ha.
Current Activity: The Shovel Lake wildfire did not experience the same activity and growth as yesterday, however, there was some fire activity again on the east side. The fire is split up into North and South divisions. The North division worked to secure the Hannay Road and the png pipeline on the west flank of the fire. They have a secured line at this point. Crews also worked to tie in Tatin Lake northwest to Owl Lake. There are unburned pockets of fuel on the fire side of this guard that will be hand ignited tomorrow if conditions allow. In the South Division the fire did get onto the south side of Stern Lake. Crews built guard on the south side of the fire activity and were successful in guarding this excursion. The big picture plan for the South division is to build a guard from Stern Lake east all the way across the north of Fraser Lake. Equipment will also build guard following a png pipeline that runs along the north shore of Fraser lake. This will act as a secondary guard for the properties on the north shore.
