$1:
The fires burning in northern Saskatchewan could burn until the first snowfall, according to researchers.

Kerry Anderson, a research scientist with the Canadian Forest Service, said the weather pattern known as El Nino, which is caused by the warming of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of South America, is responsible.

He expects weather conditions will settle down in Saskatchewan in the coming weeks, but warmer than normal temperatures will likely persist in B.C. and Alberta.

Regina Regina:
Golfed last night with a guy on the Canadian PGA tour who played in Saskatoon last week and said you could barely see 200 yards. 8O 8O


Sounds like Los Angeles back in the 1980's!

Unfortunately, it is a perfectly natural way for the forest to renew itself.


Easy for me to say, thousands of miles away an a couple of hundred yards from a Great Lake.

When I lived up north there was a muskeg fire that burned inside town limits, behind the hospital for about 3 years. Most of the time all you could see was a wisp of smoke rising from the ground. One spring I was planting potatoes when this clump of willows burst into flame about 20 metres from me, burnt like hell for a few minutes an petered out to a wisp again. Fun and games! That fall they bulldozed the peat around the fire and it burnt itself out over winter.

Two of the fires burning around La Ronge have joined up and now there are fears that the town itself faces a real threat of serious damage.......not good.
