The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

Fire­fight­ers now have the Wain­fleet Bog fire un­der con­trol.

An up­date from the Min­istry of Nat­u­ral Re­sources and Forestry says fire­fight­ers have doused the en­tire 6.4-hectare foot­print of the fire.

Pa­trols are now us­ing in­frared sen­sors to look for still-smol­der­ing hot spots be­low the sur­face of the peat bog. Var­i­ous agen­cies were in­volved in bat­tling the blaze.
