The Southeast Fire Centre will have some extra support in dealing with wildfires this summer.
BC Wildfire Service has temporarily brought in a team of firefighters from Alberta to assist with current blazes in the region.
The 16 Type 1 Firefighters and one agency representative were brought in through the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre mutual aid agreement.
They will be stationed in the Southeast Fire Centre and are available to be relocated throughout the region as required.
