We’ve evacuated. The kids’ school (McKenzie Community School) has burnt down, along with a lot of friends’ homes, people who live up river from us. Our house is Level 2 fire evacuation now. Level 3 seems imminent.
Last I heard the fires were just a couple of miles away. The town 45 minutes East has reportedly burned. Be safe out there!
Update: The school survived! Our area was upgraded to Level 3 the next day, though our home has not been in the path of fire yet. Electricity is expected to be out for 3 weeks.
