British Columbia is on the cusp of changing its government for the first time since 2001, as the province scrambles to contain scores of wildfires that have forced tens of thousands of residents from their homes.

In addition to the services being offered at 11 evacuation centres across the province, hundreds of British Columbians have stepped up to offer up their homes as accommodation for those affected by the wildfires.

"We all packed, we had a week or so to get ready for this", said LaChance.

The fire is burning very aggressively because of the weather, the dry fuel and the region's topography, she said, adding that every specialist who has come in to work on the fire over the past week has made a comment about how "nasty" the fire is.

"Certainly the weather on Sunday was quite a bit more mild than what we had been experiencing Saturday in terms of wind and temperatures", said Skrepnek.

On Sunday, there were approximately 37,000 evacuees across B.C. Evacuees have begun to show up in the Lower Mainland; now, there are 616 at the Cloverdale Arena evacuation centre and 330 people at the Chilliwack Secondary centre.

Skrepnek said more burns were planned for fires around Williams Lake, 150 Mile House and Ashcroft.

"We're here to get some help and then head to the Island", he said.

More than $81 million has already been spent on fighting the fires in B.C., according to Lee.

"Winds picked up and huge fires all around us", Jacinda Mack, a community member who had stayed behind to support firefighters said by email around 2 p.m.

The Thompson Nicola Regional District says in a news release that evacuees are encouraged to try and arrange their own accommodations with friends or family due to a limited capacity. It took him nearly 12 hours to reach Kamloops from Williams Lake - "bumper to bumper the whole way", he said.

The evacuation does not affect other hospital operations at this time - the Emergency Department remains open.

The fire is now 80 per cent contained and evacuation orders and alerts were dropped last night for all but 69 properties.

"Well, what can you expect when you're evacuated.You're going to take what you can get, you know?" said Kellen.

"The possible duration of this is different", Mr. Turner said.
