UPDATE: SRF Now Under High Fire Rating, No Fire Ban On Area

UPDATE: 3:50pm

As the forest fires from the Temagami region continue, Smooth Rock Falls has now officially been moved to a high danger rating.

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Spokesperson Isabelle Chenard says there is still no fire ban being placed on any of the municipalities of Kapuskasing, Hearst or Smooth Rock Falls by the MNRF.

However, Chenard says each municipality is also able to place a municipal fire ban on their area, which neither Kapuskasing, Hearst or Smooth Rock Falls has done as of yet.

Chenard says the high fire rating still means residents within the community should be cautious of burning materials at this time.

She also says the southwesterly winds have also been causing smoke to drift northeast which has led to many of the municipalities along Highway 11 corridor dealing with the effects.
