BC Wildfire Service says a containment line has been established around an out-of-control wildfire near 100 Mile House.

The fire was discovered Friday and grew to cover an estimated 36 hectares, and is still at risk of spreading.

A blaze 40 kilometres south of Houston has also kept about 80 **>firefighters<** busy this weekend.

That fire, which is about 75 hectares in size, is contained and isn’t expected to grow.


The cause of the Houston fire is under investigation, while the blaze near 100 Mile House has been attributed to lightning.
