May 14 South Whiteshell Fire Afternoon Update

Posted on: May 14, 2021  |  

Manitoba Parks has provided the following updates this afternoon at 2:49 PM

  • There was a flare up this afternoon, (additional heat from the sun) but crews got on it quickly both on ground & with aggressive bucketing by helicopter
  • Water Bombers were called in and dropped 4-5 loads as a precaution & have since departed again.
  • Skies becoming overcast will help
  • Parks crews continue erecting Trail Head Barricades
  • Toniata Cottagers can go to their cottage (road is open) but they will be stopped on way in. Parks DOES NOT want anyone else there.
  • Small flare up 4 kms east of Brereton – extinguished – was small & dealt with

And reminder from this morning’s update

  • RESPECT THE BARRICADES – barricades will be put up on trail heads. DO NOT just walk around them. Resources are stretched & they need the publics assistance, not only for dealing with this situation, but to also minimize future risk and to keep everyone safe.
