CLEAR PRAIRIE, A.B. – The Siphon Creek fire has caused the Alberta Government to issue a voluntary evacuation alert for part of Clear Hills County.

Due to the forecast for high winds Saturday night, the Province issued a voluntary evacuation alert for the Clear Prairie area west of Range Road 100. The evacuation preparedness alert remains in effect for other areas north of Highway 64 and west of secondary Highway 726.

If you evacuate contact 780-835 8097 by text or phone.

Any persons having trouble breathing due to smoke should seek immediate medical assistance.
At last report the Siphon Creek Fire was 24,000 hectares and moving to the east into Alberta. We hope to receive a further update on the fire Saturday night.
