More crew members join effort to quell Alkali Lake fire

193 crew members are now on site as the Alkali Lake wildfire continues to grow.

Now at over 33 thousand hectares, BC Wildfire crews are working overnight along with 21 pieces of heavy equipment, 12 helicopters, and an Australian Incident Management Team to try and quell the blaze.

Efforts today will focuse on the construction of a guard between the south guard and the Stikine River, and assessing dangers on the Highway 51 corridor.

A machine guard is also being built on Muddy Lake Road as well as a hand guard for the Tuya drainage.

The Tahltan Nation is working with crews to protect culturally significant sites.

Strong winds are once again expected to create hazards for crews today.
