B.C. remains under a state of emergency as 155 wildfires continue to burn across the province. Fifteen of those fires are threatening communities. About 32,000 British Columbians have now been displaced as one of the worst wildfire seasons in B.C.’s history continues. The B.C. Wildfire Service has provided a map of where the fires are located (it may not load in high traffic times so you might need to be patient). The map is accurate as of 5:30 a.m., Wednesday, July 19,

although the wildfire situation may change at any time. The larger flames on the map are considered “wildfires of note.” Thousands of people were evacuated out of Williams Lake and the surrounding areas as winds on Saturday, July 15, blew a number of fires closer to the city. Officials said that while the flames haven’t reached Williams Lake, an evacuation order was issued because the fire threatened to cut exit routes.  READ MORE
