THE CHUCKEGG CREEK FIRE Update 4:00 pm June 17, 2019

THE CHUCKEGG CREEK FIRE Update 4:00 pm June 17, 2019


The wildfire is continuing to work it’s way northward another three kilometers and eastward another six kilometers. The front is approaching and we expect winds to shift and pick up within the next hour or so. At this time the fire is about four kilometers north of the Boyer River cell tower and about 17 km back from the river directly east of La Crete.

We completed a back burn along the Peace River, which is going very well. The intent was to remove this vegetation to reduce the risk of the fire spotting across the river and into Blue Hills when the wind changes to westerly. For your information, the poplar in that ignition area burned clean and hot which demonstrates just how dry and volatile the forest is. Typically poplar, with more moisture than coniferous trees, burns slower. That’s not the case under current conditions.

Dozers are working to create guard south of High Level, that leads towards Devil Lake. Heavy equipment is prepared to work through the night.

The wildfire continues to be active in a couple of places along the west perimeter as well as in one spot on the northwest corner.
