Wildfire burns 90% of village that recorded Canada’s highest ever temperature

A wildfire has burned 90% of a village that recorded Canada’s highest ever temperature. The fire had caused extensive damage to Lytton, in British Columbia, and to surrounding critical infrastructure. The village this week recorded the country’s highest-ever temperature of 49.6C.

Abnormally high temperatures have been recorded in swathes of North America too. Temperatures have been easing in coastal areas of Canada but there is not much respite for inland regions.
