Fires in the northern forests of Saskatchewan continue to burn. 

A CBC News camera man shot this video today about 32 kilometres north of La Ronge. 

More than 100 forest fires continue to burn, as about 600 firefighters and 200 support people work to fight the blazes. Of those fires, 57 fires are larger than 100 hectares, fire officials told reporters today. 

Just under 5,200 evacuees have registered with the Red Cross and the provincial government. Others are staying with family or friends.
