Fire in BC's Lake Country around '80 per cent contained,' say officials
Thousands of Williams Lake residents are being forced from their homes as high winds fan a wildfire burning next to the community. That's according to the city's Mayor Walt Cobb, who said the winds have proved challenging for fire crews.


Hawkins is a natural talent.

"I knew I could do it because I'm in the yard a lot and I keep hearing the phone and come running in to get it", Hawkins said ahead of the race, according to the story. "I thought it'd be fun to run 100 meters since I'm more than 100 years old".

Hawkins, who was born in Wisconsin in 1916, said she likes "the feeling of being independent", as well as the challenge. She says her secret to living a long life is family, eating healthy, and exercising. She has four children, three grandchildren and one great grandchild she likes to impress, she told the Washington Post.
