No Evacuation for the Town of Magrath

The Town of Magrath would like to address rumors about evacuation for the Town of Magrath.  Our current status on the Kenow wildfire is safe.  There is no evacuation for the Town of Magrath or in the immediate surrounding areas of Cardston County. If there is ever a threat to our safety we do have procedures in place to notify our residents as quickly as possible. Our information is the most up to date and accurate, as we speak directly to our Fire Chief. 

Also, please read the information carefully on other sites.  Yes there are evacuations in Cardston County and yes we are considered in Cardston County, but there is accurate location information in the evacuation details.
