The area is adjusted according to the work carried out by the ground teams, so it is normal for it to vary a little and it is the same for the perimeter. Currently the area is estimated at 62,211.4 ha. The perimeter of the fire is just over 200 km. The fire is considered "Content", which means that its progression is stopped, at least temporarily. The work of extinguishing the hot spots located on the perimeter to the northwest of the border made us progress in the control of this one. From the start of the week, the weather should change. With heat and dryness, the fire could wake up and resume activity within the perimeter. Nearly 280 people work at the fire site. This includes ten sections of twenty forest firefighters from Quebec, Ontario and Alberta, the major fire management team, pilots and personnel from certain suppliers who support operations. Today’s temperatures will be cool, the relative humidity will be fairly high and the winds will be light. This will facilitate the deletion work. Due to the weather conditions that we have had since Thursday, the fire has no activity (it is dormant), which allows the forest firefighters to work to consolidate the borders in order to surround the fire inside its perimeter by watering hot spots. jean-guy
