Fire in the hole!

Check out the following links for fire info:

Fires threaten to trap Bella Coola Valley

BC Wild Fires

Note: Highway 20 is the only road in or out of the valley.

We’re busy making provisions in the event we are evacuated. We are on alert. I won’t be posting again until we are all safe and this is over.

Wish us luck!

    Ohh dear Kristeva please be careful
    Fires are extremley dangerous, so what ever you dont stay and fight the fire, my uncle and aunty and there 3 kids tried and now they are all gone
    Bushfires are a nasty but very real experience
    Goodluck But promise That you will be safe

    Good luck
    And See you After the horrible event is over
    From Mitch

    • Thanks Mitch,

      Quite ironic twist to our story eh! First you now me in the same boat. But, our situation is less frightening than yours I’m sure. For one thing, the landscape/terrain here is much different from yours and does help us a lot to fight the fires. Also, it allows the fires to venture where nobody is and we can rest a bit in between; unlike the typical Aussie bush-fire!

      I would never stay and fight the fire here at the house. I saw many people do that in Canberra and some lost more than their houses. I am not that attached to my ‘things’ as to risk losing life over. My only concern is for my animals safety.

      cheers and many thanks,
