At least 30,000 homes in British Columbia have been ordered to leave because of wildfires in Canada


British Columbia has experienced a surge in evacuation orders, with at least 30,000 homes under alert. The province's emergency management minister emphasizes the importance of following evacuation orders, as they can be life-threatening for both residents and first responders. Premier David Eby estimates the total number ordered to leave at 35,000, with 30,000 being prepared to evacuate. Canada is experiencing its worst wildfire season on record, with at least 1,000 fires burning across the country. Climate change experts believe that hot, dry weather increases the risk of fueling wildfires, as extreme heat draws moisture from the ground, which can fuel fires that spread rapidly. Despite no deaths reported in recent fires, at least four firefighters have lost their lives during this record-breaking season.
