Yellowknife, NWT – After briefly reopening Highway 3 Saturday morning, the Northwest Territories Department of Transportation promptly closed it again.

Reports say a fire just south of Chan Lake has left a 13 kilometre strip of charred forest from kilometre 97 to kilometre 110 along the highway between Behchoko and Fort Providence.

The department will reportedly open the road, even if just for a short window, in order to make sure goods and people can still get through to the N.W.T capital.
