About one-thousand soldiers have started rolling into Saskatchewan to help fight wildfires in the north. About nine-thousand people have now been forced out of their homes, including those from La Ronge, one of the biggest communities in the area. Premier Brad Wall says he's happy for the military's contribution and isn't too worried that fire will spread into La Ronge. (The most significant fire in the province is burning about three kilometres north of La Ronge. Officials say an area near the town that was burned by an old forest fire is acting as a natural barrier and wind was expected to shift flames away from the town.)
