From several people who measured the amount of Saturday’s drenching downpours, the consensus is that we received about 4+ inches or 10+ centimeters all in the one day! With that and Tuesday’s rain, the Fire Danger has been lowered just a bit to HIGH – so please no campfires except for warmth and food.
However, elsewhere, folks weren’t so lucky with fires…3 acres went near Canoe Channel in Carling…the inner channel near the Pancakes, where kids with fireworks were the culprit but the Carling fire department contained it…. Then an island in Parry Sound’s Big Sound…the cottage was lost along with some of the island. Thankfully, 2 helicopters came in to contain that fire.
