The Commissioner of Emergency Services for Saskatchewan Duane McKay reports there has been significant progress on fires and their impact on communities with cooler weather in the Pelican Narrows area. That means more people can return to their communities. He says we will see Jan Lake go back to their community and Tyrell Lake will also be allowed to go back today and they have a little bit of work in and around Birch Portage to clean up and then they hope by the end of today or early tomorrow those folks will be able to go home as well.
They join residents of Pelican Narrows and Sandy Bay who started returning earlier this week. The Hanson Lake Road, highway 106 opened last night to the general public.
