Six fires are active in Saskatchewan, with the Tuff and Rally Fires still not contained.
To date, 159 fires have burned in Saskatchewan, higher than the 5-year average of 98.
Executive Director of Wildfire Management, Steve Roberts says the Rally Fire, west of Prince Albert, is still 21-hundred hectares in size, while the Tuff Fire, in Meadow Lake Provincial Park, is over 51-hundred hectares.
He says favourable weather recently allowed crews to focus on containing both fires, and he hopes, specifically, to contain the Rally Fire in the next day or so.
Roberts says the fire ban on all Saskatchewan crown land, from the Churchill river down to the U.S. border, is still in effect, despite scattered showers in the southern part of the province.
Meantime, a spokeswoman for Emergency Social Services says the majority of the 225 evacuees from Waterhen First Nation are heading home.
The evacuation order for that community has been lifted for those with no health issues.
However Marni Williams says a small number of people with health problems will stay in Saskatoon until air quality in the area improves.
