Boundary wildfire update provided

Overnight rainfall suppressed the Boundary wildfire enough for officials to life an evacuation alert in effect since late last week in Waterton Lakes National Park.
The fire remains active and is about 860 hectares in size.
Waterton Lakes National Park at 9 a.m. Monday reopened most areas that were closed on August 24 due to the wildfire.
The following areas have been reopened: Crypt Lake Trail; Bertha Falls and Bertha Lake trails, and Bertha Falls and Bertha Lake backcountry campgrounds; Emerald Bay Day Use Area; Driftwood Beach; Alpine Stables; Hay Barn Road; Crandell Loop; Knights Lake; Maskinonge; Wishbone Trail; non-motorized access to Red Rock Parkway up to Coppermine Creek; and access to water bodies.
Parks Canada will work with Glacier National Park and other partner agencies to manage the wildfire and to protect key infrastructure and resources.
Fire activity, including smoke and flame may continue to be visible to the public in some areas in the coming days as sunny, warm days return.
