Members of several First Nations in Northern B.C. are refusing to evacuate in spite of encroaching wildfires. Several dozen residents of the Nadleh Whut'en First Nation stayed behind to protect their homes from the Shovel Lake wildfire, which continues to grow. Evacuation orders have been given as crews try to save about 150 homes on the north shore of Fraser Lake.
