There are currently 148 fires burning across the province as the Summer forest fire season rages on.
Fire information officer Ryan Turcot says five of these fires have forced either evacuations orders or alerts.
“One of the ones we are actively and closely monitoring right now is the Puntzi Lake fire in the Caribou Fire Centre. It is currently at 8102 hectares in size and about 40% contained.”
32 of the forest fires are known to be human caused.
