B.C. is battling what could be the province's worst wildfire season on record, stretching resources with months still remaining in the season.
Currently, there are nearly 200 fires burning. One blaze grew 10 times in size overnight; Metro Vancouver has been blanketed with clouds of smoke; the province has already spent $80 million fighting the flames; and new fires are breaking out almost hourly.
All of this is a cause for worry to thousands living on the West Coast.
But before many even realized that B.C. was burning, hundreds of firefighters were working in the background, strapping on their gear and heading out the door.
Crew members across the province started posting photos from the front lines on social media when the first fires broke out in May, and needless to say, they put into perspective just how dangerous their jobs really are.
Note: The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch would like to remind the public to stay away from fire sites for the safety of themselves and the crew.
