Vale Manitoba Operation firefighters provides support in the efforts to fight wildfire near Cranberry Portage

Vale Manitoba Operations has had a 5-member firefighting team in Cranberry Portage since this weekend.

The Office of the Fire Commissioner put out a call to all northern Manitoba fire departments looking for support to control the fire approaching the community, which has been evacuated to The Pas.

Vale sent a fire truck and four firefighters plus a fire advisor to help with those efforts.

The firefighters are supporting value protection in towns and near cottages, like setting up sprinkler systems, refueling water supply pumps, and shuttling water.

This crew will return to Thompson this evening.
