Wind is both hampering and helping firefighting efforts in northern Saskatchewan. Premier Brad Wall says wind is threatening to spread the wildfires while at the same time clearing smoke for some firefighting aircraft. Wall met today with emergency officials and a group of firefighters near La Ronge. (Fires have forced at least 52-hundred people from their homes in the north since last week. Officials say 51 communities have been evacuated or partially-evacuated due to the fires and the dense smoke.)
