I'm on OK Centre Rd. West and Tyndall intersection, it's clear here for now with wind blowing away in other direction.

Just started spitting out so may even get a bit of rain, but doubt it would amount to much considering there aren't many clouds.

Area near Seaton park shows no real change that I can see. Still some smoke, probably slowly getting less and less. We can hear the chainsaws working on the fire line so they're still reinforcing that line it seems. While we're technically still under evac order the police have stopped blocking the roads and are letting people back in.

That sounds promising at least.

I wish this wind would stop though.

All quiet so far at the end of Hare Road, hope it stays. Crews are still on Nighthawk putting out spot fires. Seeing a bit more smoke drifting North along Tyndal ridge. Cant see whats happening on the south end of the fire.

Are they still using planes over there?

I don't see any at my end anymore.

Bird Dog is back flying around the fire and I see one Bomber heading up the lake so looks like they will be doing some more air action.

Sounds like they are going to do a drop along the houses on Nighthawk road south end. Firemen are being pulled out of the area for the drop.

I'm in the camp road area under evac order. Tried to get in as I was driving on the connector when the evac order was made, just want some simple things. RCMP road block said talk to the Fire Department. Fire Chief said no. So there are still road blocks and they are only letting people in on a case by case basis.
