first_imgAn update is expected Tuesday from Parks Canada on the Verdant Creek fire that’s been a headache for both firefighters and travellers over the past couple weeks.Embers are now landing near Highway 93, causing small grass fires which so far have been quickly put out by ground crews.However, as a result of heavy smoke, and the possible spread of the fire, Highway 93 could be closed at any time.Sunshine Village also remains closed until further notice as fire crews use it as a staging area.last_img
