It's good news for some families that were too close for comfort.
As of Wednesday (May 16), all families who evacuated during the Strathcona County wildfire have returned home.
"We've been able to get FortisAlberta into the area as well and they've been able to do an evaluation on their infrastructure damage and restore power to the homes that were evacuated back on the weekend," said Bob Scott, Strathcona County’s deputy fire chief.
Emergency crews are continuing to work on the fire in the area of Township Road 562 and Range Road 211 (northern Strathcona County). The township road between Range Road 211 and 213 remains closed.
The situation remains stable and the fire is being held, however, it's not under control.
Crews on-scene include 14 firefighters, two command staff, four brush trucks, two dozers and four water tenders. Flare-ups caused by the wind continue to cause problems.
No cause for the fire has been determined, although investigators have confirmed it was human-inflicted.
Strathcona County’s fire advisory will remain in effect over the May long weekend.
