(ROUND LAKE, ON) – A threatening yet small forest fire broke out in the northern community of Weagamow/ Round Lake today.
At least one home was evacuated into the surrounding area due to the flames and an incoming water bomber.
We are told that nobody is believed to have been injured from the incident. Water bombers were dispatched to douse the flames.
Word going around is that some kids were playing in the bush and started a fire.
The fire has since been put out and families are assessing the damage, if any, from the water bombers. Hot spots still remain and crews are monitoring and working on the situation. The situation has been deemed “under control”.
