Alban residents put on evacuation alert Monday

The Parry Sound 33 forest fire is now only five kilometres west of Highway 69 and less than one kilometre from the Pickerel River. The fire is now 8,973 hectares in size.

This is according to the fire situation update issued by the province’s Aviation, Forest Fire and Emergency Services division.

The Municipality of French River issued an evacuation alert for the Alban area yesterday, west of the high powered hydro lines on Highway 64.

The northeast and east portions of the fire were the most active Monday and a few of these sections progressed eastward towards the CN Line.

Crews have been working hard to slow the fire’s progression in this part of the fire.
