Smoke from some of the worst Canadian wildfires in years is drifting across the Northeast. The largest forest fire in Nova Scotia’s recorded history is expected to grow even more. The fire in Shelburne County started on Saturday and is now upwards of 50,000 acres, prompting the evacuation of upwards of 16,000 people. Wildfires have also broken out throughout western Canada. The National Weather Service says the smoke is expected to make its way across the region Thursday and that unlike the smoke from western fires, it will be lower in the atmosphere.
