It seems safety reminders about forest fires in Quebec have worked.
SOFEU, the province's forest protection society, says July was one of the lightest forest-fire fighting months in years.
It reports 60 such fires last month.
The figure, on average, was roughly a hundred for the month in the last decade.
The society adds just over 20 hectares of land was destroyed as opposed to the average of some 82-hundred hectares.
The society also says the number of fires caused by humans has diminished and that Mother Nature has also co-operated.
