A fire ban continues across the district. Weekend rain hasn't been enough to lift restrictions.
There was one new fire confirmed yesterday afternoon. Dryden Fire Number 8 is being held at 0.8 ha and is located near Seseganaga Lake.
There were eight fire confirmed in the Northwest Region by the end of the day on Friday, May 25. Most of these fires are under control or out.
Campers are still allowed to use gas stoves and heaters. However, breaking the ban gets expensive fast.
The top fine is $25,000, in addition to the cost of putting out the fire.
