It is receiving a modified response, which means it is being monitored and managed by Wildfire crews. The fire is burning at high elevation and in the coming days it is possible smoke and debris may be experienced in the Cooper Creek, Meadow Creek, Argenta, Lardeau, and surrounding areas based on forecasted wind direction.
