Forest and Wild Fire

Forest or wild fires are of particular concern during the hot dry periods during the summer months.  These fires affect us all in one way or another since they hurt the forestry industry, displace wildlife and can even affect our weather. The Canadian Forest Service produces weekly summaries of the fires across Canada while daily situation reports are available from the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre.  The Global Fire Monitoring Centre keeps an eye on the fire situation internationally.
