    On July 6, 2017, a two-hectare wildfire began west of 100 Mile House, British Columbia, Canada marking the beginning of the record-breaking 2017 wildfire season in British Columbia. On July 7, 56 new fires started throughout British Columbia (BC) leading to the release of several evacuation alerts, orders and the declaration of a provincial state of emergency by the Government of British Columbia.

    On this episode of The Last Wire Podcast, we are joined with Myles, VE7FSR. In this show, we will learn about the 2017 wildfires that displaced thousands of residents in the mountains of British Columbia and how his group helped maintain communications despite the dangers and challenges they faced.
