No, British Columbia is not on fire again this summer — at least not yet — but northern parts of Whatcom County may be seeing enough black smoke billowing up from north of the border to make them think it is.

Firefighters have responded to multiple structure fires in south Abbotsford, B.C., according to a story posted by The Abbotsford News.

According to the story, the Canadian fires are at Capt'n Crunch Auto Recyling on Vye Road about a mile and a half north of the Sumas Border Crossing.

Abbotsford News reporter Vikki Hopes also posted video of the fire to her Twitter account:
