Fire hazard creeping up
The forest fire hazard has begun to climb into the “moderate” range for most of the Northwest Region, the Ministry of Natural Resources reported yesterday.
A higher forest fire hazard remains around Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Black Bay Peninsula, and the shoreline of Thunder Bay, extending from Hurkett downwards to Pigeon River Provincial Park.
No new fires were confirmed in the region yesterday while Thunder Bay District had the only new confirmed fire on Tuesday.
It is now “out.”
In related news, Aviation, Forest Fire and Emergency Services sent a total of 33 personnel to Alberta on Monday to help out with its forest fire situation.
Ontario still has one FireRanger crew deployed in Minnesota.
There continues to be 22 active fires the region—none of which are posing a threat to people or property.
