High Level wildfire Update May 24, 2019

The Chuckegg Creek Wildfire (High Level area) remains approximately 3 km southwest of the Town of High Level and is still classified as Out of Control (OC).

The last recorded size is approximately 99, 250 hectares.

Firefighters have completed a successful controlled burn to create a containment boundary along Highway 35 south of High Level and along Highway 58 west of High Level and the fire perimeter. This burns all excess fuel such as dry grass and combustible debris.

There are 154 structural firefighters that continue to establish and maintain structural protection on homes within the Town of High Level, Mackenzie County, and Norbord. Alberta Wildfire has 261 wildland firefighters along with 28 helicopters on this fire. There are more resources arriving daily.

The power that has been restored is temporary. Communities should expect power to be potentially intermittent over the next few days.

Highway 35 is closed from 5 km to 30 km south of High Level. La Crete Ferry can be used as a detour for Highway 35 and La Prairie has reported short wait times.

Highway 58 is closed from High Level to approximately 90 km west of High Level with no detour listed.
