This week, the village recorded the highest temperature ever in the country, which reached 49.6 degrees Celsius

A deputy in the Canadian Parliament said that 90 percent of the village of Lytton has been devastated by fires, after temperatures recorded their highest ever.

Representative Brad Weiss added that the fires caused extensive damage to Leighton, British Columbia, as well as destroying the surrounding vital infrastructure.

Jan Polderman, the mayor of Lytton, told the BBC he was “lucky to have survived”.

“There isn’t much left of Lytton, the fire is everywhere,” he added.
