Fire Situation Worsens In Northeastern Ontario

Fire crews are desperately trying to cut down dozens of raging fires in northeastern Ontario, after evacuation orders left some property owners uncertain of whether their homes and businesses
would survive the flames.The fires have often been helped along by Mother Nature, with hot, dry conditions combined with lightning strikes and blustery winds fuelling, and often igniting the flames.
Bu Sunday evening, the largest fire in the area — known as “Parry Sound 33” — had grown to more than 50 square kilometres in size and remained of control. More than 60 fires were burning as of Sunday, and more than 20 were out of control. Firefighters have poured in from across Canada, the United States and Mexico to help Ontario crews battle the flames. (The Canadian
