Parks Canada doesn't expect any more growth in the Boundary Creek Wildfire within Waterton Lakes National Park.

With a much cooler trend in the weather, fire managers do not expect any more growth in the Boundary Creek Wildfire within Waterton Lakes National Park.

The blaze, which crossed into Canada last weekend, remains at 1100 hectares in size and there's been no growth in the past few days. The forecast in Waterton is calling for continuing cooler temperatures and precipitation in the form of rain and possibly even some snow in the coming days.

As of Friday (Sept. 14) Parks Canada says the Bertha Lake Trail, and Bertha Lake and Bertha Bay Backcountry Campgrounds will re-open.

The Boundary Wildfire remains at 14% contained.
