Two out of control wildfires continue to rage north of Fort McMurray.
The Richardson Fire, stretching from McClelland to Richardson Lake remains at nearly 388,000 hectares, while a blaze burning southeast of Kearl Lake has scorched 350 hectares of forest.
Smoke from nearby wildfires is again settling over Fort McMurray causing air quality concerns.
Those with pre-existing health conditions should stay inside and limit outdoor physical activity.
