WILDFIRE LWF148 (Janvier)
An update from Alberta Forestry:
The growth of the fire west of Janvier yesterday was not as big as anticipated. Fortunately, it burned into an old burn area from previous years. The limited fuel prevented rapid spread of the fire resulting in only an additional 300 hectares of growth. The fire currently sits at 1,600 hectares.
Today winds are out of the W-NW, this will push smoke into the community. Forestry is optimistic with the previous suppression work done on the East and South edges that it will hopefully limit the spread of the fire.
