The Southeast Fire Centre expects the 30 hectare blaze northwest of Fernie to be under control by Tuesday night.
Information Officer Karlie Shaughnessy says 20 BC Wildfire Service personnel and three pieces of heavy equipment continue to work on the fire in the Bull River Area about 24 kilometres outside of the city.
Shaughnessy says significant suppression action has been taken on the blaze and it is not expected to spread beyond the existing or predetermined boundaries.
She adds crews have had to deal with strong winds but overall the weather has worked in their favour.
The BC Wildfire service initially responded to the blaze Sunday afternoon.
