The rain around Waterton Park on the weekend helped crews battle a wildfire near the border with Montana. But it wasn’t enough to put it out…and the evacuation alert remains in effect. Right now, only the townsite is the only part of the park that’s open. Most of the park has been evacuated already, and its trails and campsites closed.
Meanwhile, this year’s wildfire season in BC is now the second worst on record, having burned nearly 95 hundred square kilometres of land…so far. The single worst season for fires next door, was last year.
