Fire Risk Grows

Elmvale | by Mariane McLeod  

Springwater fire ban could be coming this weekend as Sunshine continues.

Springwater township has upped its fire risk warning to high today.

The fire prevention officer says he's particularly concerned about the possibility of forest fires, since the spring so far has been so dry.

Jeff Corriveau is asking anyone using Springwater's trail system to be very careful with fire sources, including cigarette butts.

He says unless there's a big rain soon, the township is likely to introduce a fire ban over the weekend.

Fire bans are already in place in Severn Township and in Muskoka.
