The smoke near my son's workplace 8 a.m. today. Northern BC

The fire from my daughter's driveway yesterday, & gaining ground last night. Southern BC. 

I hope she & her family got off their praying knees & got the hell out!

We haven't heard anything yet today!

Sounds like you are prepared in case of emergency. Do you have your landscape designed to reduce fire risk? 

Laura lives in the middle of a forest and they have a lot green lawn to maintain with no shrubs or trees near the buildings. They also have a flame retardant that they can spray on their buildings if a fire threatens. It is applied with a garden hose. I don't know how effective it is, but since Larry is a fire commissioner, and Laura is a firefighter, as are Michelle, Jared, and Zac, they pay attention to such details. They put the kids to work clearing the green space. 

There are 2 lilac bushes & 2 trees in the front yard but not too close to the house, along with those 2 that my husband has been at war with the neighbors over, but nothing in the backyard other than 1 lilac. Both my kids in BC are pretty closely forested. My eldest son lives in Saskatchewan so I doubt he's close to much. Haven't heard from him & his phone is not in service so wrote a snailmail. He's not on computer.
