You can have as many firefighters as you want and the best technology possible, but on a dry day, there are three simple words that can dramatically change any wildfire situation for the worse.
"The wind changed," said Al Richmond
Over the weekend there were many reports and warnings, but Sunday afternoon the entire town of 100 mile house was put on evacuation. The wild fires are still growing and more evacuations have been put into order as the week goes on.
many towns surrounding have been evacuated as well, and home loss is unknown up to date. The wildfires are very unpredictable and spreading through the smaller towns in BC. Authorities have been in the midst of putting out the fire all weekend.
Our prayers and support goes to all the families affected in BC.
