The Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry has lifted the Restricted Fire Zone in the far north and the Thunder Bay and Nipigon districts.
The Restricted Fire Zone remains in place for the southern portions of the Kenora and Dryden Districts and the Fort Frances District.
In most cases, this includes grass, debris, and campfires, even when using an outdoor fire grate, fireplace or fire pit. Portable gas stoves may still be used BUT must be handled with extreme care.
The Restricted Fire Zone is in effect until further notice.
It is a temporary measure put in place to prevent human-caused fires when the fire hazard is extreme or when firefighting resources are limited.
