It's at Tunkwa Lake Road.

The fire burning northeast of Logan Lake is now pegged at 140 hectares in size.

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

"As of last night there were no structures threatened", Lucius said.

She says the BC Wildfire Service has also requested air support.
