BC wildfires: Firefighters "counterintuitively" starting fires to bring situation under control

Global News on Youtube has the story.

The fire danger remains high, if not extreme, across B.C. as the province continues to deal with an unprecedented fire season.

In the past 24 hours more than 30 new fires have sparked.

The practice may seem “counterintuitive,” but helps rid the forest of the fuel to spark new fires. Elissa Carpenter explains.
