Firefighters make rescue

This weekend has proved to be busy for Thunder Bay firefighters. Firefighters made a rescue of 2 young girls who rowed a rubber boat off Sandy Beach. They got trapped by the wind and couldn't make it back to shore. Firefighters had to use their Zodiac boat to guide the girls back safely to shore.  Meanwhile, Its reported that a fire inside a grain bin at Canada Malting kept firefighters busy Saturday from 8am until 9 o'clock at night.  The fire took nearly the entire day to put out, the cause is unknown at this time and no injuries have been reported.
