Paul First Nation wildfire evacuation to be lifted Thursday


While the Paul First Nation remains under a state of emergency, an evacuation order should be lifted Thursday morning, a coordinator with the disaster services team said.

Darlene Rain said fire crews are still tending to hot spots and heavy smoke remains in the area, but residents will be allowed back to their homes at 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

Around 21 homes on the northeast part of the reserve were evacuated, and one family home was lost to the fire. The local school remains closed.
