The Town of Fort Frances Emergency Management Control
Group has been working to provide support & assistance with Naicatchewenin First Nation
as they are experiencing a forest fire near their community and as a result have had to
evacuate some of their community members to Fort Frances.
The MNRF effective June 25th, 2021, has placed an implementation order:
“All travel, use and access to the following areas are prohibited unless authorized by a travel
permit issued by the Fort Frances District Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. This
includes all travel on Northwest Bay Road outside of Naicatchewenin First Nation, including
West Spencer Road, Woody Road, Alex Road, and Kaiarskon South Road. Also including Charles
Road south of the kilometre marker 24 and all branch roads associated with the previously
