The B.C. Fire Service reported that the Dog Mountain fire had grown to 125 hectares, the Sproat Lake Volunteer Fire Department reported.

According to the B.C.F.S., fire conditions in the North Island have improved somewhat, which may allow for more resources to be sent to the Alberni Valley.

Residents are encouraged to call in any new smoke they see to avoid the fire spreading. Call 1-800-663-5555 (*5555 on your cell phone) for forest fires and 911 for property fires.
