British Columbia Experiencing the Most Destructive Fire Season Ever Recorded

A state of emergency has been extended in the Canadian Province of British Columbia (BC) for a third time until Sept. 1 because of the raging wildfires across the region, authorities said.

Some 1,031 fires have blackened at least 909,213 hectares (2.25 million acres) of land so far this year, making it the most destructive fire season since records began 67 years ago.

About 150 fires are currently burning across the Canadian province, with about 4,500 people still under evacuation orders, and more than 22,000 on evacuation alert.

Some 4,512 fires have consumed 2,576,415 hectares across Canada so far this year, NIFC reported.
