BC Wildfires

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Officials say there’s no end in sight to the hot, windy weather that’s threatening to increase fire activity in southern B-C. Environment Canada forecasts rising temperatures up to and above 30 degrees Celsius for the southern Interior in the coming week, and the B-C Wildfire Service says the forests are much more dry than normal. Chief fire information officer Kevin Skrepnek says there’s no rain in the forecast, and crews are concerned because the hot, dry conditions are ideal for fires to start and spread quickly. About 150 fires were burning across the province yesterday and six-thousand people remained displaced from their homes by the flames.
