Alberta, Ontario send crews to help fight B.C. wildfires

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

More help is on the way for crews fighting B.C. wildfires.

The Wildfire Management Branch says 90 more firefighters from Alberta and Ontario will arrive in Prince George this weekend.

The extra hands mean B.C. crews will be able to take a much needed rest.

That’s on top of the more than 360 out-of-province personnel that have come in from other provinces, as well as 75 members who have flown in from Australia.

Officials say 162 wildfires continue to burn province-wide.
