The change was put in place at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
A wildfire near the Champion Lakes area is currently “being held” which means “given current weather conditions and resources, the wildfire is not anticipated to grow past expected boundaries,” the Alberta Wildfire website said.
“The fire remains approximately 60 hectares in size,” the release said.
A voluntary evacuation notice for the area west of Highway 762, between Highway 22 and 178 Avenue West, was cancelled as well.
There were still road closures in place, however.
“McLean Creek Road and West Fisher Road remain closed at this time,” the Tuesday release said.
Heavy ground smoke is still being seen in the area and may continue to affect areas near Highway 762 between Highway 549 and Highway 22.
“Visibility may be affected on these provincial highways as well as local roads in the area,” the release said. “Please use caution if driving in the area.”
