BC: Hundreds of burnt RV's drone view + ground walk around 11-26-2021

BC: Hundreds of burnt RV's drone view + ground walk around 11-26-2021
At 6h am on November 17th 2021 fire broke out at an RV lot in Abbotsford, Canada. Due to extreme water levels in the recent floodings, firefighters were blocked from access. The fire that started in the early morning hours spread uncontrollably to hundreds of parked recreational vehicles. The lot located at the corner of Highway 1 and Sumas Mountain Road was partially flooded while the highway was completely submerged from water overflo. Crews battled the challenging blaze in treatcherous conditions and used ladders to allow crossing over flooded areas and ditches. Early morning images filmed from higher up on the nearby Sumas Mountain show an incredible sight of devastation. Aerial imagery show an appocalyptic scene where fire burns in the middle of surrounding water. Toxic smoke drifted in the north western direction where residents were told to shut windows and no injuries were reported.

When I purchased mine, all the DP's were parked out on that corner of the lot where the unburned rigs are parked.

There could be a back-story there.
