Rain damp­ens B.C.

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

Res­i­dents of a Bri­tish Columbia com­mu­nity who were forced to flee an ag­gres­sive wild­fire ex­pected to re­turn home the same day the province wel­comed fire­fight­ing aid from Aus­tralia.

Karen Pow­ell of the Cari­boo Fire Cen­tre says about 12 mil­lime­tres of rain fell on the fire over the week­end, al­low­ing crews to at­tack the fire's edge.
