THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Three provincial wildfire teams from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec arrived this Sunday, July 20.

The teams will help B.C. Wildfire members continue their battle against several fires across the province.

Out-of-province teams will also help provide rest and recovery for British Columbia members. They will join Ontario team members who arrived earlier this month.

The Province of Manitoba announced Tuesday morning a crew of 20 firefighters has been deployed to Kamloops.
