Before giving someone a piece of your mind, make sure that you have enough to spare.

A wildfire is burning north of Lake Okanagan Resort and moving fast, with reports residents in the area are being evacuated.

Emergency officials were witnessed going door to door in the area.

VERY VERY bad situation over there. Right down to the road. I think every firetruck in the universe is over there from the looks of it.
