Forest fire now under control

May 16, 2018

The province's forest fire watch says the fire in Nelson is now considered under control.

The fire broke out Monday afternoon and quickly spread with high winds making it difficult to fight.

Firefighters were able to bring the fire to heel by Monday night and contained it Tuesday.

The fire burned several kilometre and even threatened some homes in the area.

NB Power says at least 18 utility poles were damaged by the blaze.

A province wide burn ban remains in place.
