Fire was potentially caused by youth playing in the area

Greater Sudbury Fire Services responded to a bush fire in Capreol, behind C.R. Judd Public School at around 1:40 p.m. Friday.

Crews from Capreol, Hanmer and Val Therese extinguished the fire that measured roughly one hectare.

Deputy fire chief Jesse Oshell told that the fire was potentially started by some youth who were playing in the area.

"We are requesting residents to be extremely cautious with any outdoor burning and while out in the bush area," said Oshell. "Conditions are extremely dry and we are in a high-risk fire zone according to the MNRF."

Oshell also indicated that have been many careless fires over the past week.
