Yet Another Disaster You Probably Haven't Heard Of

The Eastmain fire is the largest wildfire in Canada since 1959, and is almost as big as all the wildfires that have burned in the US so far this year. Forecasts for the area show warm temperatures continuing for at least another 5 days, so the fire is likely to continue to spread.

The source of this, incidentally, are emails from a number of Canadian fire experts.  The MSM stuff I've seen on it is from a week ago.

Curious- You post (July 11/13) that because of the weather ,the fire is set to continue to spread even more , but this report from July 8/13 indicates rain has allowed the state of emergency to be lifted for the area.

Do you rely upon a source from New Zealand for this type of news without perhaps checking a little further?
