North Bay Fire Chief Jason Whiteley says the recent hot and dry weather and more to come is causing concern in relation to forest fires.

Infact there are six new forest fires across the Northeast including three in the North Bay District.

He says the North Bay, Callander, East Ferris, and Nipissing fire services have not yet issued fire bans, but are asking people to be diligent with their outdoor burning.

Whiteley says be aware of wind conditions, ensure your fire is completely out when finished and report any fire out of control immediately.
