With more than 4,910 square kilometres of land burned since spring, British Columbia is experiencing its most destructive wildfire season in years.

Kevin Skrepnek of the B.C. Wildfire Service says 4,910 square kilometres of forest, brush and grassland have been burned, making this year the second worst in recorded history in terms of land lost, according to CBC News.

The province’s worst season occurred in 1958 when more than 8,500 sq. km. were damaged.
