The Lakeview Inn & Suites in Drayton Valley will be offering rooms for evacuees of the Fort McMurray fire.

There is currently one family en route to that hotel, with 80 rooms available there. At Service Plus Inn & Suites in Drayton Valley as well there a 145 rooms ready to welcome people who need a place to stay.

Earlier today the Coach Motel here in Drayton Valley said they will be taking in 11 families who have been forced to flee from their homes due to the wildfire.

The families aren't expected to be arriving in Drayton Valley until this afternoon, and the motel worker I spoke to says "They slept in their vehicles last night, and picked up people stranded on the side of the road as well."

It is unknown what the families will require at this time.
