“This particular fire event is different for our province just because of the amount of hectares that are currently burning, which is, by the way, about 10 times the average year,” Wall told reporters mid-afternoon on Monday. 

Wall noted that the number of affected communities also “make this [situation] particularly unique and dangerous.”
