The Muir Creek fire just north of Shirley is now being held, according to Coastal Fire.

The one-hectare fire was discovered on Friday and under control, but on Wednesday, firefighters discovered a hot spot that had been fanned into flame by the wind.

Crews contained the perimeter of one hectare fire after it was reported out of control on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the Coastal Fire Centre said the fire is likely not to spread any further.

The fire is suspected to be caused by a person and an investigation into the fire will be ongoing.

The Muir Creek fire is currently the only wildfire on Vancouver Island.

There are currently 268 fires burning across the province, a third of which are suspected of being caused by a person.

There have been 1,156 wildfires and 310,509 hectares burned so far this year.

Most of these wildfires are occurring in the Interior, North, and Vancouver Coastal areas of BC; Vancouver Island has yet to experience any serious wildfires this year.
