July 27, 2011, Halifax – Nova Scotia is sending a crew to northern Ontario to help battle forest fires.

Nova Scotia's Department of Natural Resources says 21 firefighters will leave Thursday for a two-week deployment.

The aid comes in response to a request from the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre to help control and extinguish the Ontario fires.

Nova Scotia has had a relatively quiet fire season so far this year.

The firefighters will be working 12-hour shifts and living in tents for the duration.
