Chapleau-Area Forest Fire Under Control

A small forest fire in the Chapleau area is now under control.

Ontario's Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry says "Chapleau 2" has been brought under control at four-tenths of a hectare in size - it's located west of Spanish River Provincial Park, more specifically just west of Low Lake.

It was first reported early Sunday evening, and quickly listed as "being held".

There is one other forest fire in the Northeast, in the southwest side of Windy Lake in the Sudbury area.

The forest fire hazard for the Northeast is mostly moderate to high across the central portion of the region, or low for the southernmost and northern parts of the region.
