BC Wildfires

Central British Columbia is having quite the fire event. A friend tells me the Kamloops airport is full of AStars, 212's 412's, Cranes and Chinooks.

Evacuations of various towns as fire behaviour gets aggressive.

Unfortunately there has already been an accident with the water bucketing pilot getting injured
