The BC Wildfire Service says the McDougall Creek blaze, which started Tuesday, is suspected to have been started by lightning.
The fire is located around five kilometres north of the city and was originally sized at 0.6 hectares.
Nineteen wildland firefighters are on scene, along with three helicopters that are bucketing water from nearby sources.
BCWS says the fire is in a remote location, and that no structures are being threatened. It also added that firefighters had to hike around 500 metres into the bush from the nearest road to access the fire.
“We’re continuing to work on the fire’s flanks where it’s safe to do so,” BC Wildfire said Wednesday morning.
The fire is deemed to be out of control, though an update is expected in the afternoon.
