At this time, 120 firefighters, 5 helicopters and heavy equipment are attempting to make progress with the fire, leading them to establish control lines ahead of the fire.

However, the fire is currently rated as 0 per cent contained.

The Wildfire Management Branch says the fire continues to move farther from Tumbler Ridge, and the smoke in the Tumbler Ridge area is from fires in other parts of the province, not the Red Deer Creek fire.
