The forest fires hazard remains low across much of northwestern Ontario.

There is a pocket around Lake of the Woods that is listed a moderate by the Ministry of Natural Resources.

There is just one active fire and that's within the west central portion of Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, near Carroll Lake that's 18 hectares in size.

The lightning caused blaze is listed as under control.
