CHETWYND -- According to the B.C. Wildfire, the Mount Wartenbe fire is no longer a wildfire of note.

They say the fire is no longer posing risks or safety concerns for the residents of Chetwynd. It’s due to cool temperatures and some rain, which helped lower fire activity over the weekend. It also helped in fire suppression efforts.

 “We do have crews establishing hoses from ponds and working along the southern flank. So with all their efforts combined with the weather as well, we managed to get quite a bit of work done. And they're not expecting the fire to grow outside the perimeter,” says Pedro Roldan-Delgado, a fire information officer at the wildfire service.

The cool temperatures and precipitation are forecasted to continue throughout the week. The southerly winds are also pushing the fire away from the community.

The wildfire is still being deemed as out of control. But the wildfire service says there are no risks. “The major difference between the two one being out of control and a wildfire of note is how close it is to communities and how visible it would be,” says Roldan-Delgado.

The Peace River Regional District has also cancelled the Evacuation Alert for areas near the wildfire as of 3p.m. Monday. 

There are currently over 30 fire personnel fighting the still out-of-control wildfire. The blaze is just now 1,246 hectares in size.
