UPDATE: Alberta Wildfire says the fire is currently being held and is not expected to get any larger.
Alberta Wildfire crews are currently working to put out an out of control wildfire 12 kilometres northeast of Musreau Lake. The fire has currently burned 2.2 hectares and helicopters with buckets, heavy equipment and water trucks are onsite.
Officials say the potential for numerous lightning-caused fires will continue to be a concern over the next few days as winds are expecting to be gusty. People are being asked to pay attention while they are in forest areas.
Fire bans are still in place for the City and County of Grande Prairie, the Towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith, and Wembley and the Village of Hythe as well as the Grande Prairie Forest Area.
