Canadian forest fires spark alerts in Quebec and US

Date : 1st June 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story

Firefighters in Canada are battling more than 50 forest fires that have sparked smog alerts across Quebec and parts of the north-eastern US. At least eight of the blazes north of Montreal were out of control, Quebec's forest fire protection unit said. Smoke moved over Massachusetts and New Hampshire in the US, with the city of Boston covered in a haze on Monday. Officials in both countries have warned people with breathing problems to remain indoors until the smoke clears. The fires - sparked by lightning strikes - have raged for a week, and more than 1,300 firefighters were battling the blazes on Monday evening.
