Canada could be on track for a “record” level of land burned due to an “unprecedented” wildfire season this year, government officials warn.
As of Wednesday, 414 wildfires were burning in Canada with 239 out of control, keeping 20,183 Canadians out of their homes, Emergency Preparedness Minister Bill Blair said. So far this year, 2,293 wildfires have torched 3.8 million hectares of land.
