Three weeks ago there was a massive out of control wildfire in Burns Bog wildlife area in Delta, BC. I could see the flames and the crews waterbombing the fire all the way from our place.









It took them several days to put out this fire that was close to industrial areas and also not too far from many homes. Here are some photos from the Burns Bog fire aftermath. The fire got started near these four antennas and one of them collapsed from the heat.



You can tell the burned bog and forest from the red tone.







Strong winds caused the fire to jump the four-lane highway and almost burned down the industrial area next door. It is incredible how the fire stopped (or the firefighters managed to stop it) just meters from the containers.





Traffic lights in this intersection are functional although the fire burned all around it.
