Fires included the Northmart blaze in November 2018
Financial losses in Nunavut due to fires were down in 2018, says the most recent fire marshal’s report, tabled on Sept. 23 in the Nunavut legislature.
In 2018, there were 71 fires reported in Nunavut, Fire Marshal Ted Clouter said in his report.
That number represents a decrease of about 47 per cent from 2017’s total of 135 reported fires.
And it’s roughly 40 per cent lower than the average of 119 fires over the last five years.
But the fires still caused about $26 million of losses and put roughly $306 million of property at risk.
