Local residents return from wildfires
Some local Island residents have returned from Cache Creek, Ashcroft and 100 mile house where they met and provided meals to over 17 hundred evacuees.
Arnie Hengstler is a local fisherman who says it was an emotional and eye opening couple of days…..
He says seeing the result of a wildfire was eye opening…..
He says there were mountains that were completely burnt down to the roadside, he says in one case a house still stood in the middle of a burnt mountainside and barbed wire is laying on the roadside but the posts are all gone.
