This picture of the advancing forest fire was taken this Sunday evening from our office and equipment depot in Slave Lake. The highways are closed, water ban in effect, and everyone is being moved to the beach on the edge of town. I was supposed to be there right now but needless to say I have delayed my departure.
I hope everyone in the Slave Lake area is okay and the fires do not destroy too much property. I’ve come to know many of the pilots up there quite well so I hope they all fly safe in such dangerous conditions as they fight this fire. Thanks to Jacob for the picture.
above: main street.
hopefully everyone gets out safe tonight.
