The Risk of Wildfires in Alberta - The Canadian Press
The risk of wildfires in Alberta is on the rise as temperatures hover around 30 degrees Celsius in much of the province.
There are 35 active wildfires across Alberta.
The danger in the Calgary forest area, which runs along the eastern slopes of the Rockies but does not include the City of Calgary, remains high and all existing fire permits are suspended.
Fire bans are also in effect for Banff, Canmore, Three Hills, Rocky View County, Foothills County, Cypress County, and Lethbridge's river valley.
Last year, wildfires burned up 4.3 million hectares of Canadian forest.
