On September 6th, 2009 at approximately 6:00 p.m. on the Wet’suwet’en First Nation Reserve (situated 12 miles west of Burns Lake), a fire destroyed two homes and a First Nations Head start/Daycare. Two of the homes were occupied by Chief Ruby William and Councilor Danielle Ogen. The homes were destroyed, thankfully no one was injured. Chief William was not occupying the building when the blaze occurred. Councilor Ogen, her three year old son and the father escaped the blaze.We are requesting immediate assistance & items for these individuals. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated. These families are in need of clothing, toiletries, food, and financial assistance. These items would greatly benefit all the individuals involved.

To restore the daycare we will be requesting household items and toys. Contact: Nancy Piette Ph: (250) 698-7307 email: wfnhs[at]telus.net
