Saskatchewan has sent another 42 firefighters to Ontario to help put out wildfires in that province.


Fire intelligence officer Brent Zabaraschuk says the crew will compliment 21 other Saskatchewan firefighters already battling large bush fires around Thunder Bay.


Zabaraschuk says many of the 63 firefighters working down east are northerners.


He says the personnel will be working on bulldozers and helping local crews along the fire line.
