Ottawa: The deadly wildfire on the Hawaiian island of Maui has prompted a travel advisory for Canadians.

The blaze has largely destroyed the town of Lahaina, killing at least 52 people.

It is being considered as deadliest wildfires in the U.S. in recent years.

President Joe Biden has declared the wildfire a major disaster as the wildfire continues to ravage Maui.

Global Affairs Canada says people should avoid non-essential travel to Maui, and warns that Canadians already on the island must think about leaving.

Air Canada says the travel situation to Maui remains “dynamic and evolving” given the ongoing fires.
