Highway 1 between Enterprise and the Alberta border is still closed due to an active wildfire in Steen River. The road will likely be closed for the remainder of the day.

The road was closed as a 400-hectare fire was burning around six kilometres west of Highway 35 near Steen River yesterday. Steen River is located approximately 120 kilometres south of Enterprise and about 120 kilometres north of High Level, which has been under an evacuation order since May 20th.

More updates will be provided as they become available.
