The fire ban on the region has been lifted by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Outdoor fires are once again permitted though they should be carefully managed.
However, Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls residents are still under a municipal fire ban, and outdoor burning is still not permitted.
Cooler temperatures and recent wet weather have reduced the region’s fire load and the overall fire hazard. Presently there are 53 active fires in the region – 49 of which of which are under observation, under control, or being held.
