DRYDEN, ON — It's a relatively quiet forest fire season to date in Northwestern Ontario.

As of Monday afternoon, the province's Aviation, Forest Fire and Emergency Services agency reported two fires in the region, both of which are under control.

Kenora 4 was discovered on June 23 south of Robinson Lake, about 40 km southeast of Kenora.

An aerial attack was used to subdue the flames and limit their spread to about five hectares.

It has burned 0.2 hectares.

The wildland fire hazard is mostly low across the Northwest, with areas of moderate hazard between Kenora and Thunder Bay.
