More help on the forest fire front.
The provincial government earmarking more money to offset the costs of fighting fires.
Some of the 100-million dollars will go to paying the firefighters and support staff that are helping from other provinces, the U.S. and Mexico.
Normally, the province provides the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry with about 70 million dollars toward fighting forest fires.
Minister Jeff Yurek says this has been one of the worst fire seasons in over a decade and they’ll dedicate as many resources necessary to fight the wildfires.
