Sending prayers and wishing I could send some of the water we've got around here!

“Hundreds of homes, churches and businesses in the northern Alberta town have been destroyed.”

Hundreds!?! And the first and only place I’ve heard about this is here!?!? (No offense Rick). WTF!!! Our northern neighbor has a town burning down and…silence by our media? Yup, couldn’t manage to fit it in between those 'botox for an eight year old' and 'Osama’s porn stash' stories.

Good luck Slave Lake.

Thanks very much BH readers - I am going to try to keep updating my site through the day although at the moment the CBCseems to have the most recent updates. Should any of you wish to help out in a tangible way the Alberta Red Cross is accepting donations for displaced fire victims at 1-800-418-1111. I hope it's OK to post this number here Rick.




I am with you Tim, this is the first I have heard of it. Prayers for the people and someone needs to rattle the cages of American media IMO.

(If that is possible anymore)

Tim Chesterton

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, all. I have added an update on the situation on my blog here.


For a good part of Sunday the people of Slave Lake were trapped as all the highways out were blocked with fire. Everyone had to head to parking lots and the lake's beach to avoid the town fires. But, so far, praise God, not one death. Even with an entire hospital evacuation.

Tim Chesterton

Indeed, Leslie - not even an injury, as far as we know. Given the seriousness of the situation, truly amazing.

Yahoo news slide show today about the fire.

Tim Chesterton

I've added an article on my blog from the perspective of the pastor of St. Peter's Church in Slave Lake. It's here .
