Three new wildfires are being reported in the North Bay region.
All three were discovered on Wednesday, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF).
Two are near Lake Temagami and are not under control.
One of the fires is one hectare in size while the other is 0.3 hectares.
The third active fire, which is one hectare, is south of Lake Nipissing and is being held.
