Crushed by the scorching heat, the Canadian village of Lytton, in the west of the country, was almost completely destroyed by the flames of a fire. Its 250 inhabitants were evacuated on Wednesday evening. “Ninety percent of the village is burnt down, including the town center”, said early Thursday afternoon, Brad Vis, MP for the constituency, on Facebook. The village became famous on June 29 for recording a national heat record of 49.6 degrees.

In addition to western Canada, the US states of Washington and Oregon, south of the border, also suffocated this week in record temperatures. Several hundred sudden deaths have been recorded.
