150 Homes Destroyed
in Devastating Halifax Wildfire:
‘A Very Tough Time for the Community’
More than 200 structures, 150 of which are homes, have been destroyed in the ongoing blaze ripping through the Halifax-area communities of Hammonds Plains and Tantallon – one of three out-of-control wildfires straining resources in the province.
The blaze broke out Sunday afternoon in the Tantallon area, about a 30-minute drive from downtown Halifax, and has since grown to about 788 hectares. While the fire has not grown in the last day, it is still not considered to be under control.
Mandatory evacuation orders are in place in a number of neighbourhoods, impacting more than 16,400 residents.
