Still no new fires: MNR

The Ministry of Natural Resources reported no new fires in the Northwest Region again yesterday.
Firefighters continue to work hard on the ongoing large fires in Northwestern Ontario—patrolling fire line and extinguishing hot spots within the fire perimeter.
Thunder Bay fire #37, Thunder Bay fire #39, Sioux Lookout fire #11, and Nipigon fire #26 are all classified as “under control.”
There currently are four active fires in the region, covering 30,557.7 hectares. There’s been a total of 168 fires so far since April 1, consuming 30,954.7 ha.
The fire hazard is “low” or “low-medium” in all fire districts, with the exception of Thunder Bay, where it’s “medium-high.”
In related news, travel restrictions imposed at Sandstone Lake near Thunder Bay fire #37 were lifted at midnight today.
Meanwhile, the Emergency Area Orders in effect around Thunder Bay fire #37 and Sioux Lookout fire #11 were rescinded at noon today.
The lifting of these two orders means there no longer are any travel restrictions or Emergency Area Orders imposed in Northwestern Ontario as a result of forest fires.
Fire managers have determined that the threat to public safety, caused by Thunder Bay fire #37 near Northern Lights Lake, and Sioux Lookout fire #11, southeast of Savant Lake, has diminished to the point that there is no further need for the areas to remain under an Emergency Area Order.
Public access and travel in these areas will not be affected by or infringe upon forest fire suppression operations, though caution must be exercised when travelling on roads, across land, or while boating as work will continue on these fires.
