Smoke From British Columbia Forest Fires Spotted Near McLeese Lake

Williams Lake Now On Evacuation Alert Tolko stops Cariboo operations in wake of wildfires

Tired firefighters on the front-lines against wildfires across British Columbia - rapidly engulfing more than 30,000 hectares of the province - are about to get a reprieve, or at very least some "much-needed help".

The entire District of 100 Mile House, a community of roughly 1,800 people, was ordered evacuated Sunday night.

More than 200 fires burned across the province yesterday, but Bob Turner of Emergency Management BC says the situation is still deteriorating.

Premier-designate John Horgan said he is confident that everything that can be done is being done.

A former senior staff member in Stephen Harper's government has been appointed chief of staff for the B.C. Liberal caucus.

The fires are inching closer toward a Kinder Morgan pipeline.

According to the province, while there are usually enough firefighters to go around, the 223 fires sparked between July 7-8 alone have necessitated bringing in more help.

Pembina Pipeline Corp. (TSX:PPL) continues to monitor above-ground facilities and valve sites, said a spokesperson, adding those remain unaffected by the fires.

"We are proud to stand beside our colleagues in British Columbia as they did in our time of need previous year during the Fort McMurray wildfires".

Eight helicopters and eight pieces of heavy equipment are also on scene, while local RCMP and firefighters are supporting wildfire crews.

The fire has scorched about 400 square kilometres of land and more than 14,000 people have been forced to leave their homes.

The Canadian military is also prepared to help and has Joint Task Force Pacific liaisons embedded at the Provincial Emergency Coordination Centre in Victoria.

Mounties say they also got a call Monday about three people who were spotted trying to break into a TELUS vehicle but officers were unable to track down the suspects.

"I'm very proud and grateful that we're able to help out B.C. now in their time of need as they did in our time of need during the Fort McMurray fire".

Linda Ector of Red Deer says she, her husband and their two sons spent a week relaxing and fishing at the resort several hours northwest of Williams Lake.
