Wild Fire

 Over 29 000 hectares of forest are burning in Northern Ontario.

The Timmins fire has consumed 27000 hectares. Most of the focus has been on the Kirkland Lake fire ( 2400 hectares) because it has threatened people directly.

This video shows how quickly a forest fire moves . In 9 minutes it was able to jump a four lane highway under its own power. This video was taken three days ago near Timmins.
