"The fire hazard is high to extreme across the northwest region. We're asking people to use extreme caution, when out in the bush," says Jonathan Scott from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.
Over the weekend, fire crews responded to Washagamis Bay First Nation, Pelican Pouch and Malachi. Shoal Lake residents could also see smoke on the horizon from Manitoba.
The fire at McKenzie-Portage damaged one home, before it was contained. Crews spent Sunday extinguishing it. No injuries have been reported.
Pellatt fire crews were busy Sunday morning, as they responded to Pelican Pouch, then Malachi. No injuries or damage to structures were reported.
Shoal Lake residents could see lots of smoke billowing from a fire across the border in Manitoba. It's been burning since April 29.
Scott added brush fires shouldn't be lit, when it's windy out. The ministry also prohibits burning during the day, which means fires can be lit two hours before sunset and extinguished two hours after sunset.
