Early wildland fire season in B.C. and Alberta has yet to reach Northeastern Ontario

Wildland fire season is already in full swing in British Columbia and Alberta, but so far, so good in Northeastern Ontario.

Natural Resources and Forestry ministry fire information officer Evan Lizotte says there have been ten fires this season, but they’re all out.

“The hazard is currently low in the Northeast Region,” he adds, “with a small patch of moderate hazard in the Sudbury area.”

Precipitation during the week is expected to keep the fire hazard low to moderate.

“There will be some sunny but cool days later this week, which will be flowed by rain over the weekend,” Lizotte says, “so the hazard will most likely not bounce back this week.”

He reminds us that outdoor burning is only allowed between two hours before sunset and two hours after sunrise, and never in windy conditions.
