Families still out of homes after northern Sask. forest fires
Massive forest fires in northern Saskatchewan last summer have meant several families on the Montreal Lake Cree Nation are still out of their homes.
The fires, which burned across much of the north last summer, came dangerously close to the first nation, burning a number of houses on the outskirts of the reserve. There were 44 people in Montreal Lake left without permanent homes.
While many families either stayed with relatives, or were placed in other homes on the reserve, 10 people had to be moved to apartments in Prince Albert, Sask. approximately 100 kilometres south of the First Nation.
