We went up to Kelowna BC Canada over the weekend. We could see across lake Okanagan this fire that was burning out of control. Many homes were being evacuated as helicopters brought in water to try and fight the fire.
Canada is not very warm in Summer( I guess, I m not sure but finally it is in north) Why was the fire there? I hope it didnt anyone but absolutely animals and nature r damaged! We have seen evryeach summer many times souht of Turkey.Very bad.
Actually, it was very warm where we were in Canada. In British Columbia, it was reported that there were 98 fires currently burning. This particular fire had been started by a person, but many others had been started by lightning. There is a fire burning here where I live as well.
This was Saturday night, yes? They say it is 30% contained now, but evacuations are still in effect. Found this info on the forestry sight, thought you might find it interesting Resources 264 firefighters 16 helicopters 83 heavy equipment Air tankers actioned fire today with multiple rounds of fire retardent. There are over 400 personnel on this fire. Sixty-eight firefighters from Quebec have arrived, been briefed and will be deployed on Wednesday.
