QUEBEC CITY - Quebec was lucky this year to benefit from a season during which very little forest area burned.

In a report released Thursday, the Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU) said that only 242.9 hectares (ha) of forest were affected by fire in the Intensive Protection Zone (IPZ). This is one of the smallest areas burned since statistically comparable data became available.
