The Coal Creek Fire near Fernie is no longer considered a wildfire of note.
The BC Wildfire Service says the 1,030 hectare wildfire 12 kilometres east of Fernie is now only burning at a low intensity.
They say while the fire is highly visible from Fernie and Alberta, it is currently not threatening communities.
16 firefighters and one helicopter were on site Thursday continuing to mop up the containment lines around the blaze.
Restrictions around the Coal Creek Forest Service Road have been rescinded, as there is no longer a public safety concern.
Meanwhile, the 445 hectare McDermid Creek fire near Elko remains active, but is also no longer considered a fire of note.
The wildfire continues to burn in steep and unworkable terrain and is being closely monitored.
It experienced no significant changes Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
