The cooler weather and some rain is helping fire crews deal with that huge wildfire in southwestern Alberta…
Foothills MP John Barlow got a chance to see the region by helicopter yesterday:
“I have to say the damage to Waterton is devastating. Looks like about 30-percent of the park has been severely damaged by the fire, 70-percent of the forested area has been lost. But there’s also some incredible miracles.”
That includes the fact the Watertown townsite wasnt touched by the fire.
That being said–five homes outside the park were destroyed—and ranches in the region were hit as well.
