Forest fire updater

The fire knowns at Timmins No. 3 is still being fought and is up to 58 hectares in size. The status of this fire is not as urgent as first considered Wednesday, but it is still a serious fire. It resulted in the closure of Highway 67 for several hours.
The other big fire near Timmins is called Sudbury No. 46, south of the city. It too continues to burn but not as seriously as on Wednesday. It is approaching 1,000 hectares in size. Highway 144 was closed for a time between Timmins and Sudbury, but that highway is now open.
