The Eagle Bluff wildfire remains at 2,632 hectares in size. 

A Tuesday morning update indicates that while the fire is still classified as out of control, no growth was mapped overnight.

"Today, crews will continue to build guard and complete mop up and patrol. Preparation continues for a planned ignition on the northern flank, and crews are taking advantage of the current weather conditions to complete indirect attack line," reads the update. 

The fire is burning deep in the ground, and with warm, dry weather in the forecast, B.C. Wildfire Service expects an increase in fire activity in the coming week.
