Monday’s blaze on Otter Point Road was not connected to Sunday’s fire, and this second one was also human-caused. The Otter Point Volunteer Fire Department posted the following update on their Facebook page. Visit the link to their Facebook page to view their other photos.
Otter Point Fire Department and Sooke Fire Department back on the same the same 20 acre property for another brush fire. This was a totally separate fire which also appears to be human caused.
The cooler weather means the drying process may have slowed down but every day it is still dryer than the day before.
We potentially have another 6 to 8 weeks of Very Extreme fire hazard. We must continue to exercise extreme caution even on our own property!
