Janvier Wildfire ‘Being Held’ – No Longer An Imminent Threat To Community

The RMWB has updated the status of the wildfire in Janvier to under control.

An official announcement was released by the municipality this afternoon, around 1 p.m. – stating the LWF 121 is being held, meaning that pending weather and other resources – the fire is not expected to grow past its current boundary.

The Alberta Emergency Alert has been cancelled for the area – as the RMWB says there is no imminent danger to the community.

The Regional Emergency Operations Centre is still monitoring the blaze – as well as another one in the area.

Chief of Emergency Services in the RMWB Jody Butz says the REOC team is prepared to respond quickly should conditions change.

“REOC will remain at Level 1 until further notice as we continue to monitor wildfire activity in the region,” Butz said.

More updates will be provided when they become available.
