Sustainable Development Fire Update Report

Darrell Kinley – a local cottager from West Hawk reported

“I understand cottagers at the north end of WHL have been asked to leave, the fire burnt up to hwy 312 all around the Mantario parking lot and closer to McDougals Landing almost within eyesight of cottages. Crews and helicopter with bucket are working it today with fear of increasing winds this aft. It also came close to the fish hatchery but all is OK so far.”

Daniel Klass from West Hawk reported

“There was no evidence of open fire today, May 14, ….so basically the fire of May 13 appears to be under control. However, conditions remain very dangerous in the area and spotter planes and helicopters were flying all day to dowse many hot spots. A power failure this morning was attributed to damage from the May 13 fire. The wind was brisk this afternoon and even more wind is expected tomorrow, along with high temperatures. So Fire officials have asked residents in the areas most at risk, north end of West Hawk, mainly isolated cottagers, parts of Caddy Lake around the Green Bay Resort to evacuate until conditions change. There is a checkpoint on Provincial Road #312 after the second Caddy Lake block road, and it is my understanding that traffic is severely limited beyond that point. (I am not sure what the story is for cottagers in the Ingolf area who use that road to access Long Pine and MaCarrah lakes. With no rain on the horizon, and with high winds and temperatures in the high 20”s, it is likely that these conditions are not about to go away.”
