SLAVE LAKE, Alberta — Four months after wildfires left more than 700 families homeless in Slave Lake, officials estimate a third of those families are still waiting for a place to call home, reports CBC.ca.
“You take day by day,” said Angela Blize, who is staying in a campground. “Now it is getting colder, so that is harder. The kids can’t play outside as much so, in a small space, it gets hard at times.”
The Blize family hopped from hotel to hotel after the fire, but now, like two dozen others, they’re living in a campground on the lake, waiting to move into one of the temporary homes on the edge of town, reports CBC.ca.
