Red Lake residents can feel a little bit of relief regarding the forest fire situation that at one point was threatening the community.

In a Red Lake Municipality, social media update Red Lake Mayor Fred Mota noted that Red Lake Fire 16 and 77 do not pose a threat to the surrounding communities.

Recent cooler temperatures and a little rain have led to little to no growth of the fires and have allowed the MNRF to make positive gains. 

Included in the post was that the Municipality of Red Lake will stop its daily social media updates but will continue to meet with the MNRF and community partners to ensure the area remains informed.

If the forest fire conditions change in such a manner that warrants any communication, the Municipality will update the community.
