Lytton, orașul din British Columbia care a atins cea mai ridicată temperatură înregistrată vreodată în Canada, 49 de grade Celsius a luat pur și simplu foc. Pădurile s-au aprins, iar oamenii au fost evacuați de urgență.

Martorii au relatat îngroziți pe rețelele de socializare că focul s-a aprins dintr-o dată și s-a extins extrem de rapid, incendiul masiv cuprinzând suprafețe uriașe.

Primarul Jan Polderman a emis ordinul de evacuare miercuri seară, din cauza unui incendiu de vegetație urias.

Multiple fires have broken out in British Columbia and evacuation orders have been issued for the village of Lytton, which has set a new temperature record by reaching 121 degrees Fahrenheit (49.5 degrees Celsius) in recent days. The scorching heat stretching to Canada’s Arctic territories has been blamed on a high-pressure “heat dome” trapping warm air in the region.,Image: 618862929, License: Rights-managed, Restrictions: RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – MANDATORY CREDIT “AFP PHOTO / BC Wildfire Service” – NO MARKETING – NO ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS – DISTRIBUTED AS A SERVICE TO CLIENTS, ***

„Este cumplit. Întreaga localitate este în flăcări”, a declarat Polderman pentru CBC News, citată de CNN. „Au trecut doar 15 minute de la prima scânteie și până când totul a fost cuprins de foc”.

Lytton se află la aproximativ 319 kilometri est de Vancouver și are o populație de 249 de locuitori.

Orașul cel mai apropiat, Merritt, a deschis un centru de recepție pentru evacuații din Lytton.

Temperaturile din Lytton au urcat marți până la 49,5 grade Celsius, cea mai ridicată temperatură înregistrată vreodată în Canada. A fost a treia zi în care recordul de temperaturi a fost doborât.
