Firefighters from Saskatchewan are helping to fight Kenora Fire 71. Risa Erickson explains what she likes about being part of the delegation...
"The opportunity to travel," she says. "We get to go out and help other people. They get to come and help us. Eventually, you start seeing all these friendly faces again."
Erickson's been fighting fires for about five years now, and she's visited B.C. and the Northwest Territories. She's also had an opportunity to meet crews from New Zealand and Australia.
Kenora Fire 71 is now the largest in 30 years in the district.
