B.C. remains under a state of emergency as 123 wildfires continue to burn across the province. This season is now B.C.’s worst fire season in almost six decades and officials say it will only get worse.
Just over 7,000 British Columbians remain out of their homes.
The provincial state of emergency has now been extended until Aug. 18.
The B.C. Wildfire Service has provided a map of where the fires are located (it may not load in high traffic times so you might need to be patient).
The map is accurate as of 12:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4, although the wildfire situation may change at any time. The larger flames on the map are considered “wildfires of note.”
