Global News published this video item, entitled “Wildfire smoke from the west spreads to US east coast” – below is their description.
More than 270 wildfires are burning across British Columbia, with 91 out of control, as officials warn there’s “no relief in sight.” Paul Johnson reports on the worsening situation and the fierce winds fanning the flames.
Meanwhile, the U.S. is facing its own wildfire crisis. Two weeks after lightning sparked a wildfire in Oregon, the massive Bootleg fire is still raging out of control. Smoke from the fires out west has made its way to America’s eastern states.
As Jennifer Johnson explains, people with health conditions are being warned to stay indoors due to poor air quality, and the worst of the wildfire season has yet to come.
