In Photos/Video: South African Firefighters hold celebration as they depart PG Fire Centre

South African firefighters showcased their cultural heritage ahead of the country’s Heritage Day on Sunday (September 24th).

A fire camp tour and celebration was hosted by the Prince George Fire Centre along the Old Cariboo Highway last night (Thursday).

It’s been a busy summer for the 215 South Africans who have battled wildfires in Alberta, the Bear Creek Wildfire in Kelowna (Kamloops Fire Centre) as well as the cluster of blazes in the VanJam Fire Zone, located in the Prince George Fire Centre.

A full wrap up on their time in Canada and in the PG Fire Centre will be published on Monday.

Here are some photos and videos from the event:
