Crews Tackling Forest Fire in C.B.S.

Crews were working to contain a forest fire in the Conception Bay South area of the Avalon Peninsula on Sunday afternoon.

A waterbomber has been making passes and dumping water on the blaze in the area of the Lawrence Pond subdivision and Kelligrews.

VOCM began receiving calls, photos and videos of smoke billowing from the area shortly after 1 p.m.

The latest reports suggest crews have managed to bring the fire under control.

VOCM will update the situation with more details as they become available.

Meanwhile, the Town of Holyrood has cancelled fireworks this evening associated with Squidfest due to the warm, windy and dry conditions.

The ongoing fire ban and high fire rating index will instead see the fireworks tentatively postponed until RibFest on August 6.
