The Prince George Fire Centre has confirmed a fire is burning in the Tommy Lakes area in Northern BC.

A Fire Information Officer says the fire covers around 20 hectares right now. Jillian Chimko says the fire actually started around a week ago, from a lightning strike, but has reignited in the past couple of days due to hot and dry weather in the area.
