The massive fire in Northern Quebec is Canada's second largest fire since fire records began in 1959, according to the Canadian Forest Service. The fire was nearly twice the size of Montreal with a final count of 1,621,000 acres / 655,995 hectares burnt! Called the "Eastmain Fire", the near-record blaze was ignited by lightning on May 25, 2013 and was burning along a 100-km front near the east shore of James Bay. At times, the fire spread would reach 30 km/hr and winds would blow smoke toward the village causing the activation to evacuate nearly 300 people out of Eastmain. Isolated, the small amount of people left behind worked day and night to protect the homes of 700 people with the help of others who came from across Canada.
With the constant threat of burning at any time by rapid changing winds and unpredictable fire spread, this video is a tribute for the courage, determination, and hard work of all the Workers who stopped at nothing to save Eastmain!
