THE CHUCKEGG CREEK FIRE | JUNE 05, 2019 AT 7:30 P.M.
Cooler temperatures and varied amounts of rain over the fire have resulted in a decrease in fire activity. However, with the return of warmer weather there is a potential for fire activity to increase. The decrease in fire activity has continued to help firefighters, heavy equipment, and aircraft to establish containment in priority areas. Structural and wildland firefighters continue to work around Paddle Prairie to protect values and extinguish hotspots, while heavy equipment works hard to place extensive fireguards.
On the east side of the Peace River by Tompkins Landing, fireguard lines have been completed from the agricultural land to the Peace River with structural and wildland firefighters extinguishing hot spots along the fire perimeter to limit spread. Airtankers and bucketing helicopters continue to assist firefighters on the ground as possible.
