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.

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

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