The Coastal Fire Centre is investigating the cause of a small wildfire near Pender Harbour.

The fire was reported late Wednesday night near Menacher Road.

Fire Information Officer Nicole Gagnon says the fire was about 0.01 hectares in size and this point it’s hard to speculate the cause of the fire.

Gagnon notes if you do see any wildfires the best thing to do is to call it in immediately.

She wants to remind the public that the campfire ban is still on this weekend despite some possible rain in our forecasts.
