The Township of Muskoka Lakes Mayor is sending his thanks to the fire crews for their work in controlling a major brush fire in Bala on Tuesday.
Don Furniss responded to a report on the Tuesday fire from Fire Chief Richard Hayes by giving his thanks to each of the stations involved in the response.
These stations included Bala, Torrance/Walker’s Point and Foot’s Bay/Glen Orchard.
Hayes reported yesterday that the blazed had started from a campfire that had been used days before.
Muskoka Lakes Fire Department is now taking a zero tolerance policy on anyone breaking the fire ban bylaw currently in place.
