M.N.R. Sends Support Personnel To B.C.

British Columbia is getting some help from Northern Ontario forest firefighters. 36 Ministry of Natural Resources personnel have been sent to help with their forest fire situation. 8 Fire Ranger crews and incident management staff have been sent to help. Equipment is also on its way to help. The M.N.R. says it can afford to send help with the fire rating low to moderate across the region. There is no word on how long the crews are expected to stay.
