Albertans are coming together to help their neighbours to the west fight viscous wildfires.
A group called Hemi's With Hearts (HWH) is in the midst of helping fire evacuees in British Columbia.
Local volunteer Rhiannon King used to be a resident of 100 Mile House and is doing everything in her power to help out.
"I grew up in many of these towns being affected now. It's just too much to watch and when I can see Fort Mac doing such on excellent job on donations and support, I just want to get involved with it," said King.
High demand donation items include: pet food, water, snacks, wipes, personal hygiene products, fuel cards and jerrycans.
Items needed for the front line include: picks, shovels, flame resistant coveralls, respirators, forestry fire hose and fireman boots.
"Our goal is to get enough donations to fill a 53-foot trailer," added volunteer Simone Baxter.
Cash donations are not excepted by HWH; however, cash contributions can be made to the Red Cross.
