Firefighters in North Saanich, British Columbia, opened up a firehose on middle school students on June 28, as a record-breaking heatwave continued across the Pacific Northwest.

The highest temperature on record in Canada, 47.9 degrees Celsius (118.22 Fahrenheit), was seen in Lytton, British Columbia, on Monday, Environment Canada said.

At least 43 local all-time records were broken in British Columbia during the heatwave, officials said.
