There are 237 active fires in the Territory and they have grown to 3,432,835 Ha. and many areas have been evacuated, but some remain of the 20,000 ordered to leave the capital city.

The government page for the Northwest Territories has all of the updated information, as well as the Facebook page.

As for the British Columbia wildfires, they have put the province into a provincial state-of-emergency, with more than 370 active fires.
