A degree of normality has returned to the Boundary.
This after the evacuation alerts were lifted yesterday regarding the Stickpin Wildfire less than 5km away in Washington State.
BC Fire Information Officer Fanny Bernard says the rains have certainly helped but so too the fact that there were no flying ember issues Saturday.
The southern rural communities of Grand Forks and Christina Lake had been on evacuation alert since the August 20, but there is no longer a threat of flying embers from the Stickpin Fire.
More rain is forecast through the week.
