Bracebridge, ON – Norman Miller, MPP for Parry Sound-Muskoka made the following statement regarding yesterday’s fires in Bracebridge.
I wish to thank all the firefighters and first responders who attended and fought the two major fires in Bracebridge yesterday. With the fire danger rating at high right now, it is only due to the hard work of our firefighters that neither fire spread causing a wildfire.
I also want to thank the Town of Gravenhurst and the Township of Muskoka Lakes for sending their firefighters and equipment to help battle the blaze at Muskoka Timber Mills.
We can only hope that all our volunteer firefighters are not called upon again for a few days so they are able to rest and recover.
Please be reminded that with the fire danger rating at high, no daytime burning is allowed in Muskoka right now.
