Canadá despleiga al ejército para combatir los incendios forestales en Columbia Británica

August 21, 2023 - Canadá está enviando al ejército para combatir los incendios forestales que se extienden con rapidez en Columbia Británica, donde se ha ordenado la evacuacion de más de 35.000 personas.

British Columbia declared a state of emergency and imposed a ban on non-essential travel to free up accommodations for evacuees and firefighters.

Rapidly evolving wildfires threatened large parts of the scenic Okanagan Valley, including the city of Kelowna. The city of 150,000, was choked with thick smoke as it became the latest population centre hit by one of the many wildfires scorching Canada this summer.

Blazes in the neighbouring Northwest Territories have meanwhile prompted the evacuation of regional capital Yellowknife, leaving the remote city of around 20,000 largely a ghost town.
