Chapleau-Area Forest Fire Now Out

A small forest fire in the Chapleau area is now out.

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is showing "Chapleau 2" as "out" - it was first reported early Sunday evening and quickly listed as "being held" before being reported as "under control" Monday afternoon.

At its peak, the fire was 0.4 hectares in size, located west of Spanish River Provincial Park, more specifically just west of Low Lake.

Ongoing rain appears to have helped, as most of northeastern Ontario is shown at "low" hazard with some sections of moderate.
