Last night around 8pm I got an email from a friend who lives in a cabin 50km from Faro stating that the forest fire was about 10km from their house and they needed help! Matt quickly got the camper off of the truck, emptied the rest of our stuff from the trailer and headed out along with some other folks from Faro. This is a better safe than sorry situation! They decided to start moving anything they could into Faro and I don't blame them. They have a toddler and another one on the way.
We finally all got to sleep last night around 2am. Good thing I have such a huge house with lots of bedrooms! Matt is back out there with them again this morning hauling more stuff into town. And to boot, they have family flying in from France today that they have to get to Whitehorse to pick up, but the highway keeps closing down!!
I sure hope this all takes a turn for the better, and soon. The smoke is so thick in town that you can only see a few hundred yards. Scary stuff.
