Forces personnel to leave fire zone
Military aircraft and many of the armed forces personnel loaned to B.C. at the height of the wildfire season are preparing to return to their home bases. The Department of National Defence says most federal resources will be sent home as officials in B.C. determine there’s no longer a need for mop-up support on wildfires in the Okanagan. About 100 personnel will stay to help with a fire near Princeton.
