A combination of hot and dry conditions, wind gusts, and lightning storms have led to a series of devastating forest fires that have ravaged large swathes of forest in the Cariboo, Kamloops and southeast regions of British Columbia. British Columbia has declared a state of emergency as more than 54,000 people have been forced from their homes. Fire containment efforts are ongoing, with over 1,000 firefighters battling the 230 forest fires burning across the province.
