Yesterday, winds out of the southwest caused spot fires to cross the fireguard on the portion of the fire just west of the Peace River and north of the ferry. The fire is being pushed in a northeast direction. Smoke is visible in Beaver First Nation, La Crete and surrounding communities.
Please be aware there is a smoke advisory in place for the High Level area. Wildfire smoke is causing poor air quality and reduced visibility at times. Stay inside if you have breathing difficulties. Find an indoor place that is cool and ventilated. Using an air conditioner that cools and filters air may help.
The wildfire danger level is extreme for today, given the weather and the forecast conditions. Although officials have determined parts of the region are relatively safe from the fire, areas of the wildfire continue to be active and dangerous. Please remain vigilant should the situation change.
