A catastrophic situation has been going on for days in the Lytton area of Canada, where high temperatures have given way to scary fires that have destroyed everything that has come their way.
Authorities in the British Columbia region, which this week recorded a temperature of 49% Celsius, report that almost 90% of the village has already been burned and the damage is incalculable.
Even the mayor of Lytton says it is a great fortune that he escaped after for a short time he found himself surrounded by flames.
“There will not be much left of Lytton. “Fires are everywhere,” said Mayor Polderman.
Earlier, he had called on residents to evacuate and not to risk their lives. / A2
