The fire she’s speaking about is the Windfall Creek Fire about 40k away from Tumbler Ridge. The Fire is burning in very steep terrain, preventing heavy equipment operators from working safely. Currently 40 firefighters are working by hand to control the fire; they are supported by two helicopters bucketing water. Air tankers are also available to support fire suppression efforts today. The fire is not currently growing significantly.
