May 31: A wildfire has already destroyed 15 homes on the Paddle Prairie Metis Settlement and threatens dozens more. Fletcher Kent has the latest.
More than 700 people who were forced to flee their homes in the Paddle Prairie Métis Settlement due to wildfire will be allowed to return on Thursday, the Alberta government said.
The community was told to leave immediately on May 29, when the massive Chuckegg Creek wildfire burning near High Level quickly doubled in size and spread.
The following day, it was confirmed more than a dozen homes were lost in the fire.
