After some rain, the forest fire hazard is now considered low. This means brush fires and shore lunches are now permitted.
A fire ban -- which had been put in place before the long weekend -- was lifted earlier this week. Only one new fire was reported yesterday, and it was declared out by the end of the day.
Dryden Fire Number 9 has been declared out at 0.6 hectares, and it was located near Savoy Lake.
