Wildfires have forced about four-thousand people from their homes in north-central Alberta but officials don't believe any houses have been lost. About 37-hundred people have registered as evacuees from Wabasca (WAH'-buh-scuh) and Bigstone Cree Nation and 300 rural residents in the Municipal District of Lesser Slave River have also been told to leave as a precaution. Wildfire information officer Geoffrey Driscoll says the fires threatening those communities aren't growing but it all depends what happens with the weather. (There are currently 65 fires burning in the province; 19 are considered out of control. The government issued a province-wide fire ban yesterday due to extremely hot and dry conditions, the first since 2011.)
