In an update Friday morning, the SRD said the 1.5-hectare blaze just east of Village Bay Lake was considered “being held” as of 11 a.m.
No homes or critical infrastructure was at risk of damage from the fire as of Friday morning.
All roads are open and no evacuation orders or travel restrictions are in place, though the SRD does ask travellers to avoid the area if possible.
