Fire hazard on rise


There were no new fires in the Northwest Region by yesterday afternoon.

One new fire was reported in Nipigon District by Tuesday afternoon.

Nipigon Fire #37, a 0.1-hectare blaze located about 25 km east of Wabakimi Provincial Park, is now “out.”

Meanwhile, forest fire hazard is rising to mostly “moderate” across the region, with some areas of “low” in the west and central areas.

Forest fire activity starts to ease as cooler weather arrives and days gradually get shorter, but there still can be continued fire activity well into September.

As such, residents are reminded to remain vigilant in following safe campfire practices.

Never leave your campfire unattended and make sure it is out before leaving!

Hunters also should be aware that FireRangers still can be out fighting fires in the bush and driving down the same back-country roads. Keep an eye out and think safety first.
