The wildfire situation continues to be a concern in Alberta, but less so in Saskatchewan, while the threat of flooding has lessened in British Columbia.

In Alberta, more than 40 structures, mostly homes, were lost in Little Red River Cree Nation, which includes three communities in the northern part of the province.

Darryel Sowan, the communications coordinator for emergency management, said some 3,700 people left the area quickly after the evacuation order was put in place.

There are no roads in the community, so people had to use boats, while high-risk people were evacuated by air.

Chief Conroy Sewepagaham wrote on social media on Monday that officials plan to do a full community assessment.

They will use aerial footage to try to see which houses have been damaged or destroyed, he added.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith is scheduled to meet with her federal counterpart, Justin Trudeau, on Monday to discuss possible assistance with the raging fires in the province.

Ms. Smith is also expected to provide an update on the situation with emergency services later in the afternoon.

About 29,000 people have been ordered to leave their homes in several communities due to more than 100 active fires. Premier Smith declared a provincial state of emergency on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in Saskatchewan, evacuation orders for several communities in the north of the province have been lifted.

Those living in Saulteaux First Nation and La Loche, as well as Creewater River Dene Nation are allowed to return home.

Community leaders took to social media to say they were told the fires were under control.

Fires near Saulteaux First Nation had grown to 5,000 hectares and those near La Loche and Clearwater River Dene Nation were 266 hectares.

Officers say property damage has been minimal.

Meanwhile, in British Columbia, the risk of flooding near the community of Grand Forks has been upgraded from a warning to an advisory.

After heavy rains and rapid snowmelt, the River Forecast Center says water levels in the border region have peaked, including on the Kettle and Granby rivers that flow through Grand Forks.

The center says rivers are expected to recede mid-week, but could rebound by next weekend due to snowmelt at higher elevations.

The Kootenay Boundary Regional District became the most active flood zone in the province on Saturday, as authorities ordered the evacuation of 40 properties in and around Grand Forks, not far from the Canada-US border.

On Sunday, the district rescinded evacuation orders for 34 of those properties within the city limits of Grand Forks, but also added another rural property near the city to that list.

A flood warning remains in place for the Lower Thompson area, including Cache Creek, where the local state of emergency has been extended until at least May 13.
