Crews are at the scene of a wildfire near Logan Lake.

Fire information officer Jody Lucius says while a crew was stationed at the fire overnight, it's been hard to track the growth of it, and depending on an observer's vantage point, estimates range.

Fire information officer Jody Lucius said that while there are structures in the area, none are now threatened by the blaze, which is believed to have been human-caused.

A new crew is headed out to assess what's needed to battle the blaze today, she adds. "There are some structures in the vicinity but crews had made minimizing spread in that direction a priority and, as of last night, there were none threatened".

At its peak, there were 40 firefighters tackling the blaze, as well as one helicopter and several air tankers.

Castanet will have more information as soon as it becomes available.

The human-caused inferno was reported Tuesday afternoon and quickly grew to five hectares.

Fire information officer Nicole Bonnett said initial attack and ground crews are now being supported by two air tankers.
