Australia fires: Canadian firefighter says devastation widespread

January 7, 2020

With wildfires ablaze in Australia, and a state of emergency going into effect in New South Wales, hundreds of volunteer firefighters are on their way Down Under.

One firefighter from the Foothills has been aiding local fire rescue efforts for a little while now. Graham Trenholm, an active firefighter with High River Fire and the Foothills Fire Department, has been in Australia for around the past six weeks.
