Canadian Forest Fire

Photo I took of the Shroon Lake fogged by Smoke

I woke up this morning to see that there was a heavy fog on the BI campus. As I walked outside you could smell the scent of smoke in the air. I soon learned from other students/staff that Canada has had a really bad forest fire, and the smoke has invaded our area.

"About 100,000 acres of forest have burned since a May 25 thunderstorm ignited a series of fires. Residents of one central Quebec native community have been evacuated. Some individuals were evacuated because of health concerns, said Gerard Lacasse, a spokesman for in Quebec for the nonprofit Society for the Protection Against Forest Fires." -
