Forests ravaged

Des forêts ravagées

Flame unpredictable, thick smoke, and a pungent odour and irritating transported over tens of kilometers. Saturday, forest fires have fuelled fears of owners in addition to inconvenience many residents, particularly in the area Chute-des-Passes in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean and Kamouraska in the Bas-Saint-Laurent.

Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean

Flames and smoke painted the sky near the lake Pamouscachiou, connected to the lake Pipmuacan.

The large fire north of lac Saint-Jean has doubled its size in 24 hours.

With a surveillance camera which he could access it remotely, Frédéric Waltzing attended the progress of the flames around his family cottage, located a few kilometers from the dam Péribonka, Lac-Saint-Jean. The building seems to have been miraculously spared by the fire.

Bas-Saint-Laurent

Tanks are directly filled in the river Ouelle, to water the agricultural fields located in the path of the fire.

The burning of bog in Rivière-Ouelle gives much trouble to the authorities who continued to fight on Saturday.

Almost everywhere in Quebec

All the red areas have a level of “extreme” risk of fire, according to the Society for the protection of forests against fire.
