Fire information officer Fanny Bernard says the service is completing reconnaissance and finalizing plans today.
She says U.S. crews have been working extremely hard on the blaze and the Canadian firefighters will take control of the northern section.
She says the fire has seen a lot of heat and dry, burning conditions but did not grow further toward the border overnight.
