The dry weather in Nova Scotia is making it difficult for fire crews to put out fires, including one that continues to burn on the border of Hants and Halifax counties.

Crews from the Department of Natural Resources are heading to Two Mile Lake this morning to try and get the fire under control. 

About four hectares have burned.

The other fire is in the Nictaux area of the Annapolis Valley.

The flames are controlled, but DNR crews say it will take a couple of days to burn out.

About 15 hectares have been burned in that part of the province.

The forest fire rating, according to the province's Fire Weather Index Map, for most of Nova Scotia is 'extreme'.

There are showers in the forecast for the next few days.
