Hicks Fire Update

Agassiz, British Columbia – The British Columbia Wildfire Service (BCWS) continues to attack the Mt. Hicks Fire (previously known as the High Creek Fire) 10 kilometers east of the District of Kent. The fire has proven to be very difficult to work due to the steep terrain and difficult access to the fire front.

Outflow winds overnight on August 17 created aggressive fire behaviour resulting in growth westward by more than 25 hectares.
