There are many readers who want to keep abreast of the fire situation in Northern Ontario . They are still fighting these fires, and will be for some time yet.
The rains allowed for a few of these fires to be brought under control. But the nature of 'under control' is that under the right conditions , these fires can start again. Lightning that came with the rains also started new fires. There is a long , hard summer ahead for the fire fighting crews in Northern Ontario .
