The fires have impacted many places in Canada this past week but B.C. has been hit hard. A thick haze of smoke from the B.C. Interior’s large wildfires was hovering over the Metro Vancouver region.

Residents woke up Sunday morning to an eerily dark Martian-like coloured sky, and in some areas of Vancouver there has even been reports of ash fall.

Some of the smoke is also from the Sechelt wildfire 60 kilometres northwest of Vancouver. The blaze has not been contained – it has grown from five acres to 200 acres within just four days.

A joint air quality advisory for Metro Vancouver has been issued by the Metro Vancouver Regional District and Environment Canada.

Winds cleared most of the smoke by the afternoon in time for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Championship Final at B.C. Place Stadium.
