Central Frontenac Fire & Rescue (CFFR) called in Ministry Natural Resources water bombers and a helicopter fire crew to assist with a large wild fire May 14, 2018.

At 1725hrs CFFR received a call from a resident reporting their power out and they could smell smoke in the area. CFFR located a large wild fire in a remote area between Mclean Road and Fox Road.

Due to the size of the fire, remote location and the fire threatening a large area of pine and cedar, CFFR requested assistance from MNRF.

Due to the aggressive attack by CFFR Firefighters the fire was stopped before getting deep into the coniferous trees. The fire was declared under control at 2020hrs. CFFR returned to the scene this morning to extinguish remaining hot spots.

The cause of the fire was due to a tree falling on power lines and igniting.
