One new fire reported

Despite the low fire hazard, recent rain and cooler temperatures across the West Fire Region there is still a risk of fire.

A FireRanger crew out of Thunder Bay District responded to a fire report yesterday and discovered the smouldering remains of an old shore lunch fire on an island on Shebandowan Lake that had been there for several days.
