Mountains Around Vancouver Disappear Behind Canadian Wildfire Smoke

Video shot near downtown Vancouver, Canada, on August 20 demonstrates the extreme haze of smoke from hundreds of wildfires burning in British Columbia, causing the mountains around the city to disappear from sight.

Fires were burning to the west on Vancouver Island, back to the east, and north on August 20, when this video was shot near downtown. Hundreds of thousands of acres have been scorched in the British Columbia, especially in the interior. Credit: Paul Marlow via Storyful
