About 200 people remain out of their homes as forest fires threaten two communities in the foothills of west-central Alberta.
The hamlets of Lodgepoll and Nordegg were both evacuated on Sunday.
A blaze covering 12 square kilometres has crept to within two-kilometres of Lodgepole.
More than 50 firefighters, 12 helicopters and various heavy equipment and airtankers have been involved in fighting the blaze.
The community is about 130 kilometres south west of Edmonton.
Meanwhile, the community of Nordegg is threatened by a fire covering three square kilometres.
Firefighters and heavy equipment worked on it Monday evening and air tankers are expected to be called in on Tuesday.
Scattered showers are in the forecast for Tuesday, which could help crews dealing with the fires.
