Fires cause new evacuations in British Columbia

Cots are set up for evacuees at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops, B.C. on Sunday, July 16, 2017 in this handout photo.

"A state of emergency has been declared in British Columbia as continued hot, dry weather is resulting in record breaking fire weather, and assistance is required to cope with current and anticipated wildland fire activity", CFS state coordinator Leigh Miller said.

About 39,000 people have been forced to flee their homes in British Columbia and another 20,000 are on evacuation alert as the wildfires raging throughout the province grow more intense, said Monday federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale.

And Friday evening, Emergency Info BC issued its first evacuation order since Wednesday.

The largest evacuation has been in Williams Lake, a city of about 10,000 inhabitants, about 500 kilometres northeast of Vancouver. The fire was not affecting prices beyond British Columbia, a relatively small producer, he said.

"But for the most part, that decrease in terms of the total fires burning is an indication of progress".

Referring to parties, the email continues: 'You should be dressing yourself to present a professional image. Racerback [s] with a mock or regular collar are allowed (no collar = no racerback).

Goodale had "a good conversation" with Doherty (opposition leader of the Cariboo-Prince George district) who has always been in touch to contribute in the extinction of the fire, and help the affected people.

"If we don't go now, we may not be able to get out".

About 155 Canadian Forces personnel are involved in assisting provincial authorities with air support.

The local government of British Columbia has spent 66.6 million dollars on fighting the flames in 2017, going over the annual budget of 63 million dollars for these tasks. More than 10,000 people had registered at reception centres, about half of whom were being housed in group lodging.

The fires have been making big headlines in Canada, and its been widely documented on social media.
