The mandatory evacuation order for areas of Mackenzie County will end at 2 p.m. Thursday.
This includes the Hamlet of La Crete, which was evacuated on June 18.
An evacuation alert remains in effect for those areas, and residents are being asked to be ready to leave on short notice.
The Town of High Level lifted its evacuation alert on Monday, citing favourable weather conditions and less aggressive fire growth.
