The Commissioner of Emergency Management for Saskatchewan Duane McKay reports fires in the Pelican Narrows area are a bit more stable now with the cooler weather. He adds however they expect that though this is good for firefighting it will cause a bit of an inversion so they expect that smoke will be fairly dense in that area and certainly now that they are starting to move residents back to Pelican Narrows and Sandy Bay that’ll be a consideration.
Highway 106, the Hanson Lake Road opened last night for the general public except for residents of Birch Portage.
Wildlife Management reports the Wilkins Fire is contained and progress is being made on the Preston and Granite fires. People continue to return to Pelican Narrows and Sandy Bay and their next goal is to return people to Jan Lake as soon as conditions improve further.
