A B.C. woman had an emotional night, crying, after spending it away from her husband who has dementia.
Sandra Diaz lives in the Southern Interior, in Olalla, where there’s an evacuation order because of the nearby Keremeos Creek wildfire.
When the evacuation order was issued, Diaz chose not to leave her home.
However, she delivers food to migrant workers on a weekly basis. On Friday, Diaz says she asked officials if she could quickly exit the zone to deliver food, then return.
“I deliver food to migrants every Friday. That’s what I do,” Diaz told Global News. “Yesterday, I came to the (evacuation order) blockade and asked if I could quickly deliver and then come back home. A gentleman and a lady said it wouldn’t be any problem and they allowed me to do that.”
