2018 Is Number One
Just a few weeks ago this year's wildfire season was the fourth worst in British Columbia history. Then it moved up to third and then second only to last year's record wildfires that consumed 12,000 sq. kms. of forest.
Move over 2017 because 2018 has taken your title and, by a fair and still growing margin. 2018 has already seen 13,000 sq. kms. of forest set ablaze and the season is nowhere near ending.
1,467 fires have been started by lightning, 443 by human activity.
