Smoke prevents air support

BC Wildfire crews continue to hope for a sizeable shift in the weather to clear smoke and allow aircraft to get into the skies.

Evacuation alerts are in place for some parts because of the risk of flying embers from the US blaze.

Fire Information Officer Fanny Bernard says yesterday saw no aerial activity.
