About 500 residents from the communities of Sikichu and Hall Lake in northern Saskatchewan have been forced to flee their homes after a lightning strike ignited a forest fire.
Hall Lake is one of six communities that forms the Lac La Ronge Indian Band.
The blaze was about one kilometre away from the community when people were forced to leave.
Community members are staying in the nearby town of La Ronge.
There is no word on when they will return home.
