No structures were damaged during the fire and no one was injured. Three helicopters and two water bombers had battled the blaze in the air while, Goose Bay and CFB fire stations battle the spreading fire on the ground.

    Fascinating photographs, it's 20 years since I was stationed at RAF(U) Goose Bay. I notice from the tag at the bottom of the pictures that Goose Bay, Hamilton River road now appears to have been relocated to the island of Newfoundland! Has it really moved or has Labrador been "absorbed/moved". Al Cooper, UKGB.
