From the GBA
As of today Parry Sound 33 has been classified as “contained” which refers to the completion of a 100 foot wide clearing of trees and undergrowth around the entire 120 km perimeter of the fire. Local residents are full of praise for the MNRF staff, firefighters and others who have been fighting the fire on the ground and in the air and providing information. It is clear that everything possible has been done.
Residents are now allowed back in to most of the areas around the fire zone. We will now get more complete information on the number of camps/cottages and other structures that have been lost. Our thoughts are with the community as it comes to terms with losses and the devastating destruction of fauna and flora.
