Two highly-visible wildfires in the Boundary are keeping local crews and personnel from the South East Fire Centre very busy.
They both started along Highway 3 east of Grand Forks early Tuesday afternoon in the Gilpin Grassland area and near Christina Lake.
Neither are threatening properties or communities.
But as spokeswoman Karlie Shaughnessy explains they’re throwing a lot at the 20 hectare Gilpin blaze.
Grand Forks as well as Christina Lake Fire Departments were also involved.
The wildfire danger in the Boundary is high to extreme at the moment.
