Over 70 thousand hectares said to have been burned by Red Lake 003
A massive wildfire that burned over 70,000 hectares in a provincial park in the northwest has been officially declared out.
Wildfire officials with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry confirmed this week that Red Lake 003 is no longer burning.
The fire was started by a lightning strike in Manitoba in May and crossed into Woodland Caribou Provincial Park, west of Red Lake, Ont.
