Forest Fires Dwindling

Gradually the number of active forest fires in Northwestern Ontario is dwindling. There are now just 30 actives fires in the region. So far this year the Thunder Bay District has had 57 forest fires. All of them are declared out. The Ministry of Natural Resources says the fire hazard is "high" in Southern portions of the Thunder Bay District and also in Kenora, Dryden and Fort Frances.
