RCMP family loses home

The ongoing wildfires in B.C.'s Cariboo region are a reminder natural disasters can strike anyone at anytime. 

On Friday, RCMP Cpl. Chrona and his family were forced to evacuate their home near Williams Lake due to an encroaching wildfire.

They found out on Saturday their home was destroyed by the blaze. 

Chrona did all he could to get his family situated so he could return to work and help everyone else as fires threaten others.

Enola Chrona wrote, "As you all know, our family lost our home on Friday to the wildfires sweeping the Cariboo, it has been a nightmare. Losing almost everything we have worked for has been a devastating blow, emotionally, mentally and of course financially. Thank you all so much, truly from the bottom of our grateful hearts, thank you." 

The community has put together a Gofundme page to assist the family with expenses in the short term as they begin to rebuild.
