Forces per­son­nel to leave fire zone

Calgary Herald - - CITY+REGION -

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.
