Praying for our beautiful city, all the homes, the families effected and for our warriors fighting the flames. We are evacuated, and safe. The fire started right on our road Nighthawk and we have no idea what's left of our sweet little easement or home. Devastated, but hanging in there. Please send positive vibes to Lake Country if you can ❤ #lakecountry #nighthawk #okanagan #forestfire #fire #praying
