1 New Fire Reported Sunday

The Ministry of Natural Resources is expecting it to be only a brief help. Weekend rain in some parts of the Northwest Region was a welcome relief with only one new fire reported in the District of Thunder Bay. Information Officer Deb McLean says " it was a quiet day in the region Sunday after rain helped dampen the fire hazard and smoky conditions that had been experienced on Saturday." The reprieve is expected to be short lived though as the weather is forecast to clear and put the fire hazard back into a high level by mid-week.
