For the second time in a week, residents of a wildfire-threatened Saskatchewan community have been ordered from their homes, only to be told hours later they could return.
People in the hamlet of Crutwell, west of Prince Albert, were told yesterday afternoon that they had to get out because of the stubborn nearby Rally fire.
Saskatchewan’s Emergency Communication Centre ended the order last evening when it deemed the blaze no longer posed a threat, but officials warn that another evacuation is still possible.
An evacuation order was issued for Crutwell on Monday afternoon, but it was lifted that evening.
As of last night, 11 wildfires were burning across the province with six listed as contained.
