The Muskoka Lakes Fire Department was called to a bush fire on Luckey Road. Upon arrival, firefighters had to traverse rough terrain to reach a peninsula on a small lake.  Once at the fire, crews were quick to bring the fire under control. It was evident that the area was used as a camp-site as there were remnants of a camp-fire. It is unknown when this camp-fire was used but it is clearly the source of the fire.
