The out-of-control Nohomin Creek Wildfire near Lytton, BC, has grown to 1,700 hectares by Sunday afternoon.
BC Wildfire Service officials say a fire has broken out on the west side and is spreading upward.
Structures are missing in the fast-growing Litton Wildfire.
“Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s Sunday afternoon with winds up to 40 km/h,” BC wildfire officials said on their website.
Heavy rainfall is expected in the Lyteton area today, but these amounts will not be enough to affect the fire.
Wildfire firefighters are working on the north and south sides.

“They will also continue to desilt and clean up properties along the Fraser River.”
To the north, crews are attacking the fire directly from the Fraser River to the waterline.
