Metis community jumps in to lend a hand as Alberta wildfire grows larger

An Alberta wildfire continues to burn in the northern part of the province.

It has grown to more than 90,000 hectares.

The fire forced thousands from the town of High Level and nearby First Nation communities.

While evacuations sites and hotels are at full capacity, a nearby Metis settlement is stepping up to lend a hand.
