Fires in Alberta

We've been having terribly strong winds in our area for days now. I've just been made aware that there are several large fires in our surrounding area. Luckily nothing too close to us. I hope it'll stay that way.

Please keep all the people in the affected areas in your thoughts.

Re: Fires in Alberta

Well, the town f Slave Lake could end up being completely destroyed, which would mean up to 7000 people homeless.

I'm going to phone up the helpline in a minute and offer a couple of bedrooms for people to stay if needed.

Re: Fires in Alberta

I saw this on the news this morning. So sad.

My thoughts are with everyone out there.

Re: Fires in Alberta

Oh man... I'd forgotten you're near Slave Lake. Any updates?

Luckily not that close (about 2 hours), but we are sure affected by the fires. I was really worried yesterday morning when I left the house, as I could smell and see smoke. It turns out it was the smoke blowing in from Fox Creek, which is west of us.

To tell you the truth, I'm not exactly sure what's going on in Slave Lake. We hear so many different stories, including those from the evacuees that have come to Westlock (nearest city to me). I hope that not too many families have lost their homes, and that they all can return to their town soon.
