BC Wildfires

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              This year’s wildfire season is now B-C’s worst in 60 years when it comes to the amount of land destroyed by fires. Kevin Skrepnek of the B-C Wildfire Service says flames have engulfed more than four-thousand-900 square kilometres of forest, brush and grassland. That makes 2017 the second most destructive fire season in recorded history. The province’s worst year was in 1958, when fires torched more than eight-thousand-500 square kilometres.
