Prince George, B.C. –  Although  the  Spruce Hill  Resort and Spa  at 108 Mile (formerly known as the Hills Health Ranch)   was evacuated July 9th,   it is acting as home  to a number of   firefighters,  helicopter crews and emergency officials   who are battling the Cariboo fires.

Located across the highway from the South Cariboo Regional Airport, ( also known as 108 Mile Ranch Airport) the resort has become a key location for emergency  workers.

General Manager of Spruce Hill Resort, Len Doucette put out the call to the  resort’s former owners to  help out,  and Pat and Juanita Corbett  were  quick to  return to the  facility they had  run for  more than 3 decades.

“Just down the highway from Spruce Hills, 108 Mile Golf Resort is also housing and feeding workers.” says Amy Thacker, CEO of Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association. “We are hearing stories from all throughout our region of tourism and hospitality businesses making huge efforts to help firefighting efforts and evacuees.”
