Merritt's mayor confirming that residents displaced by the fire that continues to burn at Kengard Manor are being taken care of.
"Everybody got evacuated. The fire chief and his crew did an excellent job. The majority got down to the Civic Centre. Our staff is helping people fill out the emergency services forms, and the New Comfort Inn is supplying the rooms."
With well over 50 people displaced Menard says the work to help all those affected has only started.
"Tomorrow morning we'll start over again. We might have to re-do a few of the forms, but everybody is covered for three days, and we're going to do everything we can to help them."
Displaced residents are instructed to go to the Merritt Civic Centre to register.
