UXO Prevents Effective Firefighting

Fredericton, Canada Hazards from UXO are causing problems for firefighters on the military base at New Brunswick's Gagetown base where fires are believed to have started due to training activities involving munitions. The explosives safety threat from UXO in the area has prevented firefighters from going in on foot to combat fires effectively.

A spokeswoman for the base has assured all concerned that the firefighters are ensuring that the fire cannot spread outside of the training area. In addition, she stated that alternative methods of combating the fire were being considered, including bringing in aircraft water tankers to fight the fire.
