Terrace Mountain Fire

The Terrace Mountain Fire near Fintry continues to grow. Here is a quote from

The Ministry of Forests Incident Commander expects the Terrace Mountain Fire to continue to grow. Tim Ewart says the fire, currently estimated at about 2,000 hectares, is burning out of control. The fire grew by about 700 hectares Wednesday and Ewart says with ideal conditions and ideal fuel supplies, the fire has the potential to move 30 metres per minute. "Worst case scenario on this fire right now is it could potentially could move 15 kilometres in a burning period," says Ewart.
