Dry conditions bring about extreme fire hazard

It may only be March, but the Ministry of Natural Resources is warning about extreme fire conditions. Fire information officer Debbie MacLean says it's a serious situation in the West Fire Region. The MNR is asking you not to burn outdoor fires. She says even though it's cold outside the fire hazard is extreme. MacLean says while there are no active fires burning there were several wildfires reported in the Fort Frances area
