A fire was raging up a wooded hill on the south side of Long Arm around 5 pm today. According to eye witness Doug Link, “A team led by Joe from the marina and volunteers from far and wide contained the fire using the old bucket carry method until the Seguin Fire arrived with a pump.”
Thank you so very much to Joe and all who pitched in despite the heavy smoke to minimize the damage and the risk to everyone else around the lake.
The bush is tinder dry right now and the fire hazard is EXTREME meaning NO OPEN BURNING. For more info on Fire Hazards click here.
So please – for everyone’s safety do not light any fires now!!!
