After a combined effort involving the County of Grande Prairie, Alberta Wildfire and some favourable weather conditions, the Kleskun Creek wildfire, located four kilometres east of Teepee Creek, is now classified as extinguished.  

This means there is no active fire burning and we are confident there aren’t any hot spots within the perimeter. While the area will continue to be monitored in the coming months, residents are urged to report any signs of smoke by calling 9-1-1.  

The County of Grande Prairie Regional Fire Service first responded to the May 10, 2024, wildfire near Teepee Creek. The fire expanded, burning 1,298 hectares, extending into the forest protection area in the MD of Greenview on the east side of the Smoky River. The County of Grande Prairie, Alberta Wildfire, and the MD of Greenview worked together to manage the incident. Assistance was also received from the City of Grande Prairie, the MD of Smoky River, The Town of Slave Lake, and Big Lakes County.
