Fire Hazard Low

Posted on Saturday, May 20, 2017 15:04 PM

The Victoria Day Weekend has officially begun.

The long weekend is usually accompanied by increased campfires.

Jonathan Scott a Fire Information Office with the Ministry of Natural Resources says the fire hazard isn't to bad right now.

"Currently the fire hazard is predominantly low across most of the region there are areas of moderate hazard in the Red lake district and Fort Frances district."

Scott reminds people if you are having campfires this weekend make sure to always have someone attending the fire, always have water handy and keep it sheltered from the wind.
