Bear Creek Road was among the first streets to be placed on evacuation order from the McDougall Creek Wildfire.
A property owner, who asked to remain anonymous for privacy reasons and concerns of looting, escorted Black Press onto his property to show what’s left of his personal paradise.
The evacuation order came at 1:25 p.m. on Aug. 17. The home and everything else on the property burned to the ground that same day.
The property owner believes only four structures remain standing in the Bear Creek area.
