More than 550 wildfires are burning in British Columbia. Fire officials in BC are responsible for the region during wildfires, but the federal government is responsible for First Nations. Because of this disconnect between government agencies, evacuation orders may be delayed. Band councils are responsible for issuing evacuation orders for members on reserve land based on advice from provincial and regional fire districts. Thousands of people have already been evacuated, and thousands more have been told they will need to leave soon.
