Humidity can be a good thing especially when it comes to forest fires.
The provincial fire centre says high levels of humidity so far this summer along with light winds have been a saving grace when it comes to fires.
Spokesperson Matthew Rough says the current fire situation is fairly quiet across New Brunswick.
“We do not have any out-of-control fires and any fires we do have are either being patrolled or they are out,” he says.
Despite the record breaking heat in many areas, Rough says few new fires are being reported across the province.
Based on a 10-year average, Rough adds this is considered a normal year although the number of fires and the area burned are both higher than 2017.
