Lots of great information is coming in from people all over the Temagami area. Thank you to all those that share and send emails, post on various Facebook pages and get the message out.
The Ontario MNRF website for information on the fires is updated regularly as is the map of restricted areas. There is an excellent summary of the work being done to fight these fires (that has also been shared through posts and emails by others) on the website which can be found HERE.
It has also recently been reported that Camp Keewaydin has been evacuated and campers have been taken to North Bay.
Lake Temagami is now outside the evacuation zone.
