Prince Albert Police have issued tickets to two people who were found unlawfully inside the perimeter at the Cloverdale Fire. Tickets totalling $2,000 each were issued to a man and a woman.

The area along Highway 55, between Prince Albert and the Pulp Haul Road, has been evacuated due to the fast-moving fire. Residents have been evacuated and no one is being allowed to go back into the area for their safety and the safety of first responders working in the area.

The City of Prince Albert says that as of 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, the Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency was reporting the Cloverdale Fire as about 65 percent contained; although wind speeds and changing wind direction continue to make the situation challenging.
