Canada wildfires show signs of improvement, but long road to recovery


Wildfires that ravaged interiors of British Columbia for the past four days showed some signs of easing on Sunday, giving hope to firefighters who have been at the forefront of an "epic" battle, but authorities warn of a long road to recovery. More than 35,000 people have been driven out of their homes in the western Canadian province, forcing the federal government to deploy military, and the province to declare a state of emergency. FRANCE 24's François Rihouay reports from Montreal, Canada.
