Here's what someone from BC said on another board I visit:
"Topic: EVERYONE,... do the RAIN DANCE tonight
Maybe not, but if you pray or whatever you do, can you please keep the interior of BC, Canada in your thoughts.
Someone threw a smoke out their window tuesday and within 20 minutes, it started a fire that took over 30 hectors. Its been over 100 degrees for the past 2 weeks and we havent had rain in 20 days, so needless to say, it is very dry. ANYWHO, this fire that started has now burnt down a town, currently burning down a town, a town of 4000 has been evacuated and it just touched kamloops. The area of the fire has now exceeded 6000 hectors. People at my work live in these towns because they are so close and are devestated, plus we have to find accomidations for all the people who have been evacuated and lost their homes.
The fire fighters have stopped fighting the fire and are trying to put as much water around the fire as possible so it doesnt spread more, they arent allowed to fight it anymore because it is too dangerous and out of control. The mountain that I see outside my bedroom window is literally on fire. It is scary because it is coming to the main part of town very fast.
They have declared a province wide state of emergency and the army should be coming in soon to help out.
Now to make matters worse, on the opposite side of town, a fire started there and has now covered 200 hectors. These fires are out of control, and I am afraid that kamloops is going to be evacuated soon because of them. So if you can, please pray or hope that we will get rain soon or the fires will come under control. Thank you"
