Early in the morning, we received a call from a listener in Hay River.

They were worried about a plume of smoke in their area.

Moose FM reached out to Hay River Fire Chief, Ross Potter:

The smoke in Hay River is not local, [but] it is from fires in the area,” said Potter via email.

If you have any questions regarding potential forest fires, Potter says the best place to get any information is on the Government of the Northwest Territories Fire Update website.
