Been no other changes in status or size of all other fires in North Bay FMA

Currently the number of fire in the Municipality is now 18 (down from 19) with

11 fires listed as NOT Under Control, and 7 fires listed as Under Control

I suspect that Fire 62 will be visible from Lake Temagami today and likely the source of most of the smoke residents were smelling last night & again today
