One new fire was reported in the West Fire Region over the weekend.
The blaze, which has since been extinguished, occurred in the Kenora District late Saturday afternoon.
The forest fire hazard continues to remain “low” across all sections of Northwestern Ontario.
FireRanger crews continue with training across the region to ensure they are ready to respond to any new fires.
Always use caution with outdoor fires and follow safe burning guidelines. Remember to choose a safe site, keep your fire small, and never leave it unattended.
If it’s windy—don’t burn! Ensure the fire is put dead out before leaving the site.
If you live in a municipality, check local bylaws for any burning restrictions that may apply.
