Firefighters contain Cutbank River wildfire

The wildfire hazard in the Grande Prairie Wildfire Management Area has been reduced to moderate as crews have managed to contain a blaze burning 50 kilometers south of the city.

The wildfire just north of the Cutbank river doubled in size to 80 hectares over the weekend.

Wildland firefighters spent the weekend setting up a fireguard around the perimeter of the fire and the flames are not expected to grow beyond that boundary.

Crews are now working to extinguish hot spots around the edges. Motorists on Highway 40 are asked to drive safely and watch for firefighters that are working in the area.
