The province has sent another batch of northern firefighters to help battle forest fires in Ontario.


Provincial Forest Fire Centre spokesman John Cook says another crew of 30 left for Thunder Bay yesterday.


Cook says most of the 106 Saskatchewan firefighters now in Ontario are from the North.


The firefighters will battle blazes in Ontario until a two-week tour of duty is up.


A group of water bombers has also joined the crews in Thunder Bay.
