Wildfires West of Great Slave Lake, Canada

Canada – September 25th, 2012

A string of days with no new forest fires in Canada came to an end on Tuesday September 24. Plumes of smoke from fires west and southwest of the Great Slave Lake (upper right quadrant), in Canada, blow to the south and the southeast. The fires are located in the country’s Northwest Territories (above) as well as in the provinces of British Columbia (lower left) and Alberta (lower right).

While the fire hazard has diminished greatly in provinces such as Ontario, other Canadian provinces are still receiving hot weather that is driving up the fire danger. Ontario will be providing 33 personnel to Alberta on Monday September 24 to assist with the fire hazard in that province.
