REAL COUNTRY NEWS

Residents in Waterton have been told to pack and be ready to go at any time.

Parks Canada issued an evacuation alert for the entire park and township last night, because of potential threat from the Kenow fire burning just west of the park.

There is no immediate danger now, but the fire is growing, and continued dry weather could cause the blaze to move dangerously close.

Most of the park is closed to the public.

Parks Canada has a list of preparations that residents should consider when on alert: http://www.pc.gc.ca/apps/scond/Cond_E.asp?oID=29115&oPark=100429
