#BuffaloFire refugees, hang tight. We know it’s inconvenient to be evacuated, but there’s still active fire close to homes, and the wind is picking up. We have crews and helicopters working to cool hotspots, but we really have your safety foremost in mind in keeping the evacuation in place. We promise we’ll let you back in for good as soon as we are confident that you won’t be put in danger.
