Two New Forest Fires In NWO

With all the rain lately, not a surprise it's remained fairly quiet on the
forest fire front across northwestern Ontario.

The MNR says there were just two new blazes reported across the region over the weekend.

One was a small fire in the Dryden District, the other located near Long Lac in the Nipigon district.

Both fires were human caused.

The MNR says recent rains are helping crews get the upper hand on a forest fire in the Red Lake District which has grown to about 95 hectares in size.
