Wildfire smoke from Canada moves farther into United States

Smoke from Alberta's wildfires is drifting into the Okanagan

Smoke from wildfires in northern Alberta moved into downtown Edmonton on Thursday.

Trout Lake, Alta., a community about 300 km northeast of Grand Prairie, came under an evacuation order Friday morning.

Entry gates from the north and the east of High Level, which is about 600 kilometres northeast of Edmonton, will open at 10 a.m. Monday, she said.

He says the colourful sunsets and sunrises we've been seeing are due in part to some of the haze aloft but says the smoke is affecting only higher up.

An evacuation order was also given to residents in the Chipewyan Lake Village in the MD of Opportunity.

"This fight is going to be a tough one", Devin Dreeshen, Alberta's minister of agriculture and forestry, said Thursday.

Projected warmer and drier conditions across the country mean an extended fire season, and more lightning, which also equals more fire, said Flannigan.

"Albertans need to prepare themselves for this situation for the foreseeable future".

Rain and cooler temperatures have aided efforts to control wildfires burning out of control in northwestern Alberta, but provincial and local officials are still advising caution, even as mandatory evacuations are lifted in some areas. On Thursday it had spread to cover 2,300 square kilometres - up from 1,500 square kilometres a day earlier - but crews were still managing to keep the flames out of the town.

However, the hazy conditions are expected to linger throughout the weekend.

But it is much worse in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

"We've got a fire, that started around the same time as the High Level one, that's been north of town for a while", Warman said.

Officials with Alberta Health Services are warning people to stay indoors if possible.

Crews are fighting the fire as members of the Canadian Rangers and the Canadian Armed Forces help co-ordinate evacuations from the community of 3,800.

"Everything that the forecasters have been telling us, you know, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, is coming to fruition now", Sruzki said.

MI continues to see the effect of wildfires burning way out in Alberta, Canada, this time in the form of some orange sherbet-colored sunset and sunrises.
