While there are several fires burning in the northwest part of Alberta, Kenney says they are most concerned about High Level as it grows in intensity.

Almost 5,000 people have been evacuated from the area of High Level-a Northern Alberta town-as a wildfire rages just south of its borders.

Eighty-nine firefighters, 24 helicopters and three air tankers are involved in fighting the blaze there which started Sunday and has reached an estimated 69,000 hectares on Monday.

The Town of High Level told residents on Monday to fill their gas tanks, gather important documents and prepare food and water before ultimately issuing the evacuation order.

While dry conditions to come are making for a bleak forecast that could see fire dangers increase later this week, Kenney noted that Alberta's response to the disaster has been commendable.

Wildfire danger in much of northern Alberta was rated as extreme, with the risk rated as high to very high in the central-west parts of the province.

Wildfires also burned out-of-control Sunday in the Slave Lake Forest Area, the Fort McMurray Forest Area, and in the Notikewin area near the community of Manning.

"Lock doors and windows, take small personal belongings including pets, identification, medication cash", the provincial government said in an emergency alert.
