We are off Evacuation Alert!
The crews have done an incredible job of building fire breaks and containment lines. It helped that we had a drizzle of rain again last night. It was enough to wash the cinder and ash off the car and somewhat clear the air.
I can even see the mountain ridges this morning.
From what I am reading and hearing there has been no lives or property losses so far. The fire was kept to the back country and bush. Now we just have to hope that the residents of Lemon Creek and Slocan are as lucky as we have been.
Thank you to all of you for your messages, emails and prayers. It did make the waiting game more bearable.
