Forest Fires, part 2: The view from above

Earlier this summer a forest fire was burning north-east of Inuvik. The fire consumed more than 4000 hectares and burned more than a week.

Waterbombers were the first line of attack. Firefighters from around the NWT then painstakingly drowned the fire at the ground level. No buildings were destroyed.
