they don’t really know whether it’s really a camp for somebody who’s displaced or whether or not it is really a kiddies’ tree,” Younger said.
He explained that a helicopter having a wildfire team was discharged from Chilliwack.”They will probably fly across the flame and check, and they’ll land up here to people and so they’ll rappel from above,” Younger said.
