Fire ban remains
Much of Temagami remains under an open-fire ban due to the extreme fire hazard from lack of rain and high temperatures. It covers (see gray area of map below) all of Temagami, except areas north of lakes Temagami, Diamond, Rabbit and Florence.
The ban was put in place on July 13 for all of northeastern Ontario. On July 19 it shrunk to North Bay, Espanola and Sudbury fire districts.
This is the second ban this summer, the first in May. Backcountry travel is not restricted, but campers must use a portable gas stove for cooking and warmth.
Failure to comply with the ban could result in a fine up to $1,000, financial responsibility for fires caused, and a jail term.
