A cooling station has been set up by the Lac La Ronge Indian Band as a result of the extreme heat in the area.

The station will be set up at the Jonas Roberts Memorial Community Centre on the Band’s Kitsaki reserve.

The cooling station opened at noon Friday and will provide cool water, ice and sandwiches to those who go.

The entire province of Saskatchewan is currently under heat warnings and fire bans.
