As if the BC Fraser Valley doesn't have enough to contend with due to the massive flooding disaster, I just saw a news report that there is a huge fire burning at an RV facility in Abbotsford.

Watching the fire video, this appears to be Fraserway RV, which is just off the Hwy 1 in the badly flooded Sumas area.

Hundreds of new RVs stored there and many of them have been totally consumed by fire.

The roads are so badly flooded that fire trucks cannot reach the area.
Wow, this is brutal...[emoticon][emoticon]

That is sure to reduce inventory before the winter slowdown. I sure hope electricity isn't affected by the fire. Those towers are awful close.

From the aerial view, the fire looks to be at Four Seasons RV Rentals at 37117 North Parallel Road

Once fiberglass gets burning there is little to stop it.

There is a concern there that the lines could be compromised. And I read one article that said if the smoke is thick enough the extremely high voltage could actually ground itself via the smoke. Fire crews have to be very careful.
Scary stuff.
I keep looking for updates, but find none. They have had all day now, I wonder what the outcome was.
