USA ready to resume North Korea talks, seeks denuclearisation by 2021
Kim say Mount Paektu has become a "subject of yearning" for South Koreans and Koreans living overseas . The next meeting between Trump and Kim should seek to produce a timeline for denuclearization, he said.

There is little the firefighters can do but look on at the rotating column of air and flames. They occur when a gust of extremely hot air blows through the fire at a certain angle, producing a spinning momentum, which then sucks up embers and debris.

The phenomenon that spins a funnel of flames, ash and embers into the sky is well known to firefighters and also goes by the names "fire whirl" and "fire devil.", They mimic meteorological whirlwinds or dust devils, and are actually more closely closer related to those phenomenon than to actual tornadoes.

The fire, which peaked at 20,800 hectares, is still burning, but is classified as "being held", meaning officials don't expect it to grow any larger.

The video was taken while crews battled some of the worst wildfires in British Columbia. There are still more than 397 active fires, said Tower.
