The B.C. Wildfire Service says that operations have gone well, and will continue today.

“Dozer guard west of Farrell Creek on the SW flank is complete, patrol and mop-up continues on the perimeter where possible. Planned ignitions on the south flank were successful and burning on the north and west flanks may happen today as opportunities arise”

Rain is expected to hit the Peace River Region tonight, which will also help fire fighting efforts.

• 61 firefighters
• 5 helicopters
• 3 heavy equipment
15 support staff are also working on this incident.
