An evacuation order is in place for parts of west-central Alberta as a wildfire burns in the area.
The 366-hectare fire, which is about 19 kilometres west of Nordegg, was discovered Tuesday and initially responded well to firefighting efforts.
Fire officials say it's considered out of control due to increased temperatures, low humidity and high winds.
The evacuation order issued by Clearwater County on Wednesday night includes several provincial recreation areas, the Centre for Outdoor Education and Frontier Lodge.
An evacuation alert is also in place for the hamlet of Nordegg, which is about 175 kilometres west of Red Deer.
Officials say residents in that area should be prepared to leave within two hours of being notified.
