Right now the fire is a modified response fire, which means it is being actively monitored but there are not firefighters currently working the fire. There is a structural protection unit has been setup to protect a nearby compressor station.
The Peace River Regional District has issued an evacuation alter for the area.
The PRRD says the Evacuation Alert is for anyone in the area following the Sikanni Chief River on the west, to PDR 73/Horn Road on the southwest across to the Braland Creek, east along Conroy Creek, north along Conroy Creek and across back to the Sikanni Chief River. The area is within the oil and gas fields of Tommy Lakes, Conroy Creek, Laprise Creek and Black Creek.

Any concerns should be directed to the Regional District at 250 784 3200.
