Fire bans have been issued for a good chunk of the province.
With a consistent dose of warmer weather, does Fort Saskatchewan have one on the way soon?
"Unless it dries up real fast, I don't think we'll be getting a ban," said Paul Prevost deputy fire chief with the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
Close-by fire advisories are in place for Westlock, Parkland County, Leduc County, Beaver County and the County of Minburn.
There are fire bans in Jasper National Park, Banff National Park and most of southern Alberta.
If you do see a fire, call 9-1-1 immediately, even if you think you can put it out.
