Vancouver: The B-C Wildfire Service said this week’s heat wave and windy conditions could present more challenges for crews battling several major wildfires around the province.
Environment Canada said temperatures in several areas of the province are expected to climb to 38 or 39 degrees Celsius on Monday.
The Ministry of Emergency Management has said a repeat of the 2021 heat dome, which claimed more than 600 lives, is not in the forecast.
But it is warning people to be careful to stay out of the heat, drink water and limit activity. – Canadian Press
