There are 34 active wildfires in the province and the 3 of main concern continue to be the Wilkins, Preston and Granite fires in the northeast near Pelican Narrows.
That community along with Birch Portage, Jan Lake and Sandy Bay are under a volunteer evacuation, and new to the list is the recreational community of Tyrell Lake.
Executive Director of Wildfire Management, Steve Roberts, says the largest of the fires, the Granite fire grew on its east side, moving closer to Tyrell Lake.
Because of that, Highway 106 was closed for a period of time. There are 4 permanent residents in Tyrell Lake and the rest are seasonal.
Roberts says the fires are still too volatile to recommend a return for residents.
Provincial coordinator with Emergency Social Services, Deanna Valentine, says the number of registered evacuees has grown to 27-hundred-97 with 807 in Saskatoon and 19-hundred-90 in Prince Albert.
Because of the high number in P.A., she suggests if anyone wants to move further south to Saskatoon, that can be accommodated.
She adds that it is common for those displaced from their homes to want to move closer as they expect their evacuation period to end, but the number of people in Prince Albert could also be because people have more friends and family there.
