Fire season comes to a merciful end

The Ministry of Natural Resources is happy this forest fire season is finally over.   Spokesperson Debbie McLean says it was one of the busiest they've seen in years. She says there were 13 hundred and 30 fires which cost the government 230 million dollars to put out.  In addition a modern day record 600 thousand hectares of forest were destroyed.
