Fire crews in B-C are struggling to contain a large wildfire growing in the province's Central Interior. Fire Information Officer Melissa Klassen says crews have suffered setbacks as they try to battle a fire raging southwest of Prince George. It's so far consumed about 240 square kilometres. Klassen says strong winds have helped the blaze grow more than 40 per cent in size since Saturday. (The nine-day-old Little Bobtail Lake fire has forced about 80 people from their homes and has put many others on evacuation alert. More than 300 firefighting personnel are on site battling the blaze.)
