This is Fire Prevention Week and Fire Chief Jim Petrie reports the number of fires in Flin Flon remains around average. He says last year we had 62 fires which is a little below average but this year we’ll be around average which is approximately 75 fires. He adds we’re already at 61 fires so far this year.
Petrie says we can do better as a community adding we have to be more vigilant about fire prevention in our homes and in case of fire every home should have smoke detectors. You can contact the fire department if you have any questions.
