CREWS CONTINUE TO BATTLE FOREST FIRE ON QUEBEC SIDE OF THE OTTAWA RIVER
7/10/2018 7:11:43 AM
A forest fire continues to burn on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River just above the mouth of the Presqu'ile. It's believed the fire first began following lightning strikes Thursday night and gradually grew over the next few days. Reports indicate water bombers attacked the blaze both Saturday evening and again Sunday morning, but fire was still clearly visible on the hillside late Sunday evening. We hope to have an update on the fire from the Ministry of Natural Resources later today.
