Canada is looking for international support to fight over 160 wildfires that

have forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes and businesses.  

The fires, which are burning in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, 

and Manitoba, have been fueled by hot, dry weather and strong winds. 

The Canadian government has already deployed more than 

2,000 firefighters to battle the blazes, but it has asked for help 

from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico.  

The United States has sent 100 firefighters to British Columbia 

and Australia has sent 200 firefighters to Alberta.
