Prescribed burns slated


Two low-complexity prescribed burns tentatively were scheduled to be ignited yesterday on separate islands within the Lake of the Woods Conservation Reserve area.

The prescribed burns were on Blaze Island, located directly south of Falcon Island near Sturgeon Channel, and directly south of Queen Island near Wiley Point.

These low-complexity prescribed burns, if factors allowed, were to be ignited by MNR staff using hand-held devices.

The Ministry of Natural Resources in Sioux Lookout District, meanwhile, was scheduled to ignite a prescribed burn in the Horse Lake area today, if conditions allowed.
