The weather in Nahanni Butte, N.W.T. cleared overnight Friday and people are expected to be returning to their homes after a nearby wildfire forced them out on Thursday.

"It's really good, there's no smoke. I don't know what happened," said Earl Hope, a Nahanni Butte resident who stayed behind to monitor the community and assist fire crews.

"It's a little cool and clear, there's no smoke, everybody should be coming back today," Hope said.

About 80 of the 100 people who live in Nahanni Butte left late Thursday night after an 8,000-hectare wildfire came within 10 kilometres of the community.

  • Nahanni Butte residents told to stay out of community, as officials monitor nearby wildfire

The N.W.T.'s Municipal and Community Affairs Department asked residents to cross the river about 15 kilometres from town as a safety precaution, but community members decided to go to Fort Liard, about 100-kilometres south.

Friday morning, Mike Drake, the Deh Cho regional superintendent with the Department of Municipal and Community Affairs said it was safe to go back, but revised that message later in the day asking people to stay away overnight.

The message changed after the Environment and Natural Resources Department revised the wind forecast for Friday night, Drake said.

The territorial government is expected to provide an update on the situation shortly before 12 p.m. MT Saturday, Drake said.

Environment Canada forecasts a high of 17 C and a chance of rain in Nahanni Butte Saturday.
