Record heat fuels fires in Labrador

Smoke from forest fires near Goose Bay, 13 June 2012 (TWN)

Where’s the heat this June you ask?  Why it’s in Labrador of all places.

Goose Bay has been the hotspot in Canada for the past couple days as temperatures have soared as high as 34.8 C, setting new records.

The heat and dry conditions have also spawned a number of small forest fires but no evacuations needed yet.
