Ultimately the vast majority of them burnt: https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/flames-erupt-in-abbotsford-rv-sales-centre-among-hundreds-of-vehicles-tightly-parked-under-hydro-lines

I know that the high voltage power lines were de-energized while the fire was burning and then restored after the fire was extinguished.

The last 4 days have been a disaster here in BC.

If insurance doesn't come through in a big way no-one can survive the loss. Awful in any case.

What a sickening, tragic thing to have happen.
Thanks for the video link J Herb. That is just awful. I can't believe the severity of the fire, and also the flooding there too.

We saw the smoke plume from 60 miles south of the border, pretty crazy with all the water we have everywhere.

Sad to see a biz go up in flames, but it does remind me of a story of 2 retired gents at a bar--

First one asks, "so you retired?"

The second one says, "Yeah, sorta--a nasty fire destroyed my business and decided to retire with all the dough we got from the insurance company."

The first one says, "Yeah me too, except a flood wiped my business right off the map and the insurance settlement offered was about twice the value of my business. Hard to say no."

After several moments of silence, the first one asks, "so, how do you start a flood?"
