Scattered showers today will do very little to reduce the fire hazard in the district like this one on Sunday near White River

A number of resources, White River Fire Department, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Superior East OPP were put into action to supress the fire. The gusty winds that afternoon could have changed direction, putting the community at risk since the fire was a mere 3 kilometres north , Brenda Hrundt from Wawa-News.com reported.

OPP Closed a portion of Highway 17 Sunday as crews battled the inferno. The Highway was re-opened later Sunday night after five hours of water bombing the area.
