The fire was reported late this afternoonย around 4:00 pm. The Ministry of Natural Resource and Foresty are on the scene battling the blaze and have deemed it โ€œnot under controlโ€, so that basicallyย means itโ€™s out of control.

Crews are there working diligentlyย to attempt to contain the blaze, as cooler conditions overnight are expected to make a significant impact on the forest-fire-fighting abilities.

The fire is just to the right of Matson Lake.

This is your weekly reminder to not be an a**hole and do things that may start fires, such as, but not limited to, throwing your lit cigarettes out the window of a vehicle, playing with matches or other sources of ignition, burning without a fire permit, starting bonfires, and other generally dumb fire-related things.

We will update you tomorrow about the status of this forest fire rager. If you have any pictures of the blaze, please send them into contactus@trcctb.com
