Manitoba crews to confront stubborn forest fires in B.C., Northwest Territories

WINNIPEG - Manitoba is sending two fire-fighting crews to help battle forest fires in British Columbia and the Northwest Territories.

The provincial government says one crew of 20 has been deployed to Kamloops, while a second team of 20 has been sent to Yellowknife.

The province says the firefighters are specially trained ground crews.

A Manitoba air-attack officer has just returned from directing water bombers in the NWT, while a second officer may soon be sent to perform similar duties.

As of Monday, half a dozen evacuation orders remained in three B.C. regions where crews continued to battle wildfires despite cooler temperatures.

Nearly 190 fires are burning in the Northwest Territories. (The Canadian Press)
