Posted on Friday, May 19, 2017 13:06 PM

The forest fire hazard in the Rainy River district has inched up a bit.

It's now listed as being moderate by the Ministry of Natural Resources as we head into this long weekend.

There have been five reported fires in the district since the start of the fire season, all identified as being human caused.

Meantime, two new fires in the Red Lake area where the hazard is high sparked yesterday.

One just east of Pikangikum First Nation is still listed as being active.
