From Global Edmonton viewer Lisa Marie (via Facebook): ATTENTION: Teen Time Ranch in the Dapp/Westlock area has opened their doors to evacuee's! They can keep up to 200 people! They are cooking there as well. They have cabins, beds, camping spots, lots of space! (780) 954-2432. Please repost this to spread the word.
Westlock is now asking people to scale back on donations:
"Thank you for all of your donations, generosity from Westlock and surrounding communities has been overwhelming and at this point we need time to assess the situation. We ask that you hold off on delivering donations, for one day, until we can inventory what is needed. Cash and cheque donations can still be made at the Westlock Community Hall and Town Office. "
The fire is still burning, but it has moved past Slave Lake.
Provincial officials say because access to the area has been limited, they can’t confirm or deny which specific structures in Slave Lake have been destroyed by fire. Updates as they are available.
