It doesn’t seem like it here in the Lower Mainland, but the rest of our province is in a state of emergency. At last count, more than 180 wildfires were burning through B.C. It’s lead to evacuations of Ashcroft, Cache Creek, Princeton, 105 Mile House and 108 Mile House, while other communities have been placed under evacuation alert as well as closures of provincial parks.
B.C. Wildfire Service and Drive BC both have information lines set up with all the latest information.
