Wildfires that have already forced thousands in Canada's Nova Scotia province to evacuate were threatening communities on the outskirts of Halifax on Wednesday and causing poor air quality hundreds of miles away as smoke drifted across the U.S. border. Dozens of firefighters and several water bombers battled two out-of-control blazes - dubbed the Tantallon Fire and the Bedford Fire - northwest of downtown Halifax, the provincial capital. Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency (HRFE) crews remain on-scene and fighting the fires burning in multiple areas, with more than 837 hectares in the impacted area. At the peak of evacuation orders, roughly 16,492 residents were evacuated from their homes. There are no reported missing people or injuries reported.
