WILDFIRE UPDATE | MAY 21, 2019 AT 10:30 PM

THE CHUCKEGG CREEK FIRE (FIRE NUMBER, HWF042)

  • Great progress was made by heavy equipment and firefighters today, due to lighter winds out of the northeast. This in result aided crews on protecting power line poles west and south of the Town of High Level.
  • The Chuckegg Creek Fire remains approximately 3 km south of the Town of High Level and is classified as Out of Control (OC). Due to current conditions and resources the fire has not reached the Town of High Level. The main area of spread remains on the northwest side of the fire, away from town. Firefighters along with air support from helicopters and air tankers have been focusing efforts on the east side of highway 35 and continue to be effective.
  • Fire activity and smoky conditions make it challenging for firefighters to get an accurate GPS of the fire perimeter. When this issue arises Alberta Wildfire uses aircraft to do a high-level aerial scan at night. Data from the scan will be collected in the morning and new size will be determined.  The last recorded size is approximately 79, 805 hectares.
  • Heavy equipment will be working in a northwest direction and continue to make progress on consolidating a guard around the Town of High Level and parts of the fire perimeter.
  • Alberta Wildfire has 76, Firefighters on this fire. With more resources arriving daily.
  • Structural protection has been established in the Town of High Level and on other critical values at risk within Mackenzie County.
