WEBSITEThe Nimkish forest fire burning near Nimkish Lake on the North Island has been burning for over two weeks… and the Coastal Fire Center say it could burn into the fall.

Fire Information officer Lynn Wheeler says it is now 65 hectares in size and there are crews working on it every day.

Wheeler says they are wetting down areas to make sure the fire does not spread.
