Two-alarm fire burns unknown amount of acreage near Genoa Bay
An unknown amount of timber and brush was burned during Monday's stubborn blaze off Genoa Bay Road.
The brush fire happened at 5525 Genoa Bay Road around 10:45 a.m., some two kilometres past the Maple Bay Marina, News Leader Pictorial lensman Andrew Leong said.
The inferno was fought by members of Maple Bay's volunteer hall, with mutual aid from Crofton's hall.
Fire was seen candling up trees, while traffic was blocked until around 12:30 p.m., he reported.
The forest fire's cause was still under investigation.
