A small Canadian town was ravaged by an ongoing wildfire on Thursday after enduring the country’s all-time hottest temperatures for three straight days this week.

Most homes and buildings in Lytton, British Columbia, were destroyed and some of the town’s roughly 1,000 residents were unaccounted for following the wildfire that forced people to evacuate on Wednesday night, officials said.

The wildfire devastating Lytton spans over 30 square miles — and is one of several fires burning in the region, according to the British Columbia Wildlife Service.

“Three consecutive days of the highest recorded temperature in Canadian history all happened in Lytton this week,” British Columbia Premier John Horgan said in a television appearance.

“To have a heat wave and a horrific fire is so troubling and so challenging for the people of this community,” he said.
