Canada has been devastated by the fire. 1,100 active fires are burning in different parts of the country. From British Columbia to Quebec in the east, everything is burning to ashes with terrible forms.

A state of emergency has already been declared in Kelowna, British Columbia. On the other hand, the residents of Yellowknife, the capital of the northwestern regions, have to be evacuated, local authorities said.

And after such a declaration, extreme panic arose among the common people of Yolonnife. Residents are making every effort to leave the city. Especially they are trying to escape by rescue aircraft.

Hundreds of people were seen lining up at a local school to book plane seats on Thursday, the BBC reported.

However, this afternoon, the director of the government’s communications department, Ami Kennedy, said that it is not possible to evacuate more than 400 residents by rescue aircraft.

However, at least 22 flights are scheduled to be operated on Friday to evacuate people there.

As the wildfire is rapidly approaching the city, people are worried and angry about it. They complain that the rescue operation is getting delayed.

Local officials said 5,000 people had to be evacuated from Yellowknife by plane. But as the weather was not favorable, there was a disaster in the schedule of the plane.

Meanwhile, Canada has experience in dealing with such fires. Especially at this time of the year there are wildfires. However, this year has seen hotter and drier spring times than other years. And because of this, the fire has gone out of control, according to meteorologists.

By late Wednesday, the wildfire was just 15 kilometers from the town of Yellowknife. It was said at the time that it would reach the outskirts of the city by Friday. As a result, the residents of the city have been asked to evacuate within this period. So many people are moving in their own cars. But those who do not have the means to move by car are now in danger.
