Fire Chief Chad Cooper reports the Wildfire north of Flin Flon has grown to 720 hectares and continues not to pose a risk to Flin Flon. Officials are monitoring the situation daily. Air quality due to the smoke will vary depending on the wind direction and humidity.
With the increased temperatures over the weekend and no rain in the coming few days, everyone is urged to be cautious that no new fires start when outdoors. The City of Flin Flon still has a backyard recreational fire pit ban in place until further notice.
