There is a massive forest fire burning near French River park in Ontario.

French River Provincial Park is in a Restricted Fire Zone due to the high risk for forest fires.

Campfires and the use of charcoal BBQ's and hibachi's are not permitted at this time. Propane and portable gas stoves are permitted as an alternative for cooking. 

French River Provincial Park  west of Hwy 69 is closed. The Visitor Centre is also closed to the public until further notice.

Workers at a nearby construction site say that the fire was sparked after a machine got stuck in dry bush.

An investigation is underway.
