BC fire

Dozens of horses and cats were safely rescued from a massive barn fire in Delta, B.C. Flames broke out late Wednesday night
The wildfire service says 232 firefighters, 11 helicopters and 21 pieces of heavy equipment are battling the flames.
This is awesome.
"Public awareness and enforcement is lacking... they need to begin clamping down."
The scariest part of their job? "The unknown."
The human-caused fire is now estimated at 600 hectares in size.
The fire is ranked as a "highly vigorous."
"It was our home. Everything we have is... was there."
"The minute the B.C. government... starts charging for water from aquifers for the use based on volume without providing infrastructure we can't turn it off."
Poor thing.
