The blaze broke out Saturday, forcing officials to evacuate homes along Wilson’s Point Road.
The fire was finally termed as ”contained” late Tuesday, but Shawn Berry, a spokesman for the Department of Energy and Resource Development, says about 40 firefighters continue to patrol the area and deal with hot spots.
The fire covered an area of roughly 50 hectares.
Berry says seven other fires in the province are listed as ”being patrolled.”
The entire province is under a ban on open burning.
