Forest Fires

Keep up to date on the MNRF forest fire danger rating.

The Forest Fire Danger Rating is determined using factors such as the relative humidity, temperature, previous 24 hour rain amount, wind direction and wind speed in combination with the forest fuel type and loads to determine the risk of the forest to certain fire types.

View the Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry's Forest Fire Info Map for information about current forest fires.
