First it was floods—and now–fires. That’s what people in Westlock County are dealing with right now. A massive blaze broke out Saturday afternoon–just east of Vimy. Fire crews says some structures could be hit by the blaze—and some families were told they might have to make a run for it—if the flames got much closer.
-Fires near Bruderheim on Saturday also caused the evacuation of people in that region. These are grass fires. Fortunately–the town wasn’t being threatened. The blazes were north–but the smoke was so thick at points–it would have made travelling dangerous.
