Fire Ban???

I see on the news that Muskoka has issued a full fire ban. Hopefully this doesn't prompt the park to do the same.

Has any one heard anything else about a possible fire ban in the park.

I will find out for sure first thing tomorrow morning, heading in for 5 days tomorrow.

I may have to make a dinner menu change!!!

Re: Fire Ban???

Also heading in tomorrow, although just for the weekend. 

The park has a 'high forest fire rating' right now, but no ban as of yet.  Looks like some good precipitation Sat evening into Tuesday for most of the park, so I doubt they will go full ban.  Also hoping that doesn't change by tomorrow morning, but c'est la vie.

Seen a few videos of water bombers going after a fire west of Joe Lake right now. Hope they get it under control quickly.

Re: Fire Ban???

Just got back from 7 days and I can tell you I had to be VERY careful with my fires as the ground is almsot the driest Ive ever seen it... all of the needles etc from the fall/winter/spring around the campsites would go up like nothing

Waterbomber, Thank you!.. Friday night solo on Sunbeam. Big VERY low flying plane. I couldn't figure it out. Yes, crazy dry.
FYI, the South Island site on Sunbeam is obliterated. direct hit of a microburst / tornado last fall.

Re: Fire Ban???

This website shows the status of the ongoing fires. Most of them look to be under control as of now.
