Fire hazard set to drop

The forest fire hazard in the North West Fire Region ranges from moderate to high throughout most of the Northwest Region, with some areas north of Red Lake showing an extreme hazard.

But unsettled weather conditions in the Fort Frances District, and the south end of the Kenora and Dryden Districts will bring the hazard down to low.

No new fires were discovered yesterday.
