Hundreds of evacuees from Peerless Trout First Nation in Edmonton
Hundreds of evacuees from the Peerless Trout First Nation are in Edmonton after they were forced to flee their homes due to wildfire.
According to a statement from Chief Gladys Okemow of the PTFN, there are 370 residents from the first nation in Edmonton at five different hotels.
Emily and her seven-year-old son, Nathan, are two of the evacuees staying at a hotel in west Edmonton for the past four days.
She says they don’t have any plans to visit any sites while they’re in the city—they’re just anxious to get home.
