Centra Pipelines is reminding the public and contractors to be aware of natural gas pipeline right-of-ways and exercise caution in those areas.

Cris Kemp, risk management manager for Centra Pipelines, told the Times last week there have been a couple of recent incidents in Rainy River District that prompted the company to reinforce its awareness campaign.
In late May, an individual east of Fort Frances got their pickup truck stuck in a boggy area located just metres away from a pipeline right-of-way sign.
