Until further notice, the Phelix Creek Forest Service Road is closed from the Blackwater Lake Road junction to protect public safety and to allow free access to wildfire crews. The closure is expected to be in effect for some time. Updates on the fire and road status will be provided if and when conditions change.

The Brian Waddington Trail and the Brian Waddington Hut also are closed until further notice. The Birkenhead Lake Park Campground and the Birkenhead Estates are not affected by this closure.

The fire is shown on the interactive map. Not particularly close to the hut.

On Sept 15 this fire is still going pretty good. Looks like the fire is on the northern side of Phelix Peak.
