The B.C. Wildfire Service says a total of six crew members attacked the Atsiklak Creek fire overnight. 

Two people are currently on site managing the blaze, which is now classified as “held,” meaning it is not expected to grow any further.

The fire's size estimate has been bumped down to a half a hectare. 

More resources will arrive later today, bringing the total number of firefighters assigned to the incident Monday to eight.

The cause of the blaze remains undetermined.
