Wildfire fighters in the BC Peace are hoping for some wet weather over the next few days.
Crews have been able to keep the Red Deer Creek fire from growing larger than it’s current 35,000 hectares, but it is still burning out of control.
Higher humidity and lower temperatures have played a part in keeping the fire from growing, but a significant amount of rain is needed to start extinguishing large chunks of the wildfire.
The blaze is still burning about 3,000 hectares on this side of the B.C. Alberta border, but crews there have also had some success in keeping that fire from spreading west.
