WILDFIRE UPDATE | MAY 27, 2019 AT 11:00 AM
THE CHUCKEGG CREEK FIRE (SOUTHWEST OF HIGH LEVEL)
The weather forecast today will be bringing hotter temperatures and variable winds. This forecast will produce extreme and unpredictable fire behaviour conditions again today for firefighters. This may challenge established containment lines, in and around the community. However, firefighters have been working very hard to prepare for this shift in weather.
Wildfire and Structural firefighters will be continuing to work hard on controlling hotspots along the fire perimeter near and around High Level.
The last recorded size is approximately 127, 000 hectares.
Firefighters have completed a successful controlled burn technique to create a containment boundary along highway 35 south of High Level, highway 58 west of High Level and the fire perimeter, as weather conditions allowed firefighters to do so.
Structural firefighters have also been taking preventive measures on homes. This includes removing debris from yards, removing patio furniture from decks and other flammable material.
