The dry conditions in the province have increased safety concerns as eleven wildfires actively burning right now. Six are reportedly contained, three are of concern and being monitored while two are out of control.

The community of Crutwell was told to evacuate Monday but were allowed to start returning home Tuesday night as winds shifted, meanwhile Waterhen Lake area residents were told to leave Tuesday afternoon with a community centre being established at a Saskatoon soccer facility.

The federal government is also fighting a fire on the southern edge of the Prince Albert National Park. Ground crews and helicopters are working to take care of the situation as many campers prepare to head to the park this weekend.

The long weekend is very busy for provincial green space and that has government officials concerned. The increased activity in remote areas, the tradition of campfires and more vehicles moving in rural areas has prompted a fire ban. All Crown land, provincial parks and recreation areas south of the Churchill River are under the order, with the exception of Cypress Hills Provincial Park.
