According to Québec’s forest fire protection agency, there was a small forest fire in Harrington on June 6, but it was contained by firefighters.
The Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) reported the fire began on June 6, and is about 0.2 hectares/0.5 acres. It was located west of Route 327 just south of Petit Lac MacDonald. SOPFEU listed the fire as being held under control by firefighting crews and the cause to be determined.
A ban on forest access across the entire Laurentides and Outaouais regions had been issued by the Québec Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry on June 4. However, that ban was partially lifted on June 12 and is now limited to forest access roads in the Gatineau River valley in the Outaouais region, north of 47 degrees, 24 minutes latitude.
