OKANAGAN - A Kelowna-based firm needs to hire about 80 people to do restoration work in Fort McMurray.

Total Restoration is getting ready to sends teams to help cleanup some of the thousands of home with smoke damage, along with fridges and freezers full of rotting food.

The company has experience getting families back into their homes following a wildfire disaster, president Ken Malcolm says in a media release, pointing to their work after the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park in Kelowna.

The company is looking for about 80 cleaners and general labourers. The pay is $20 an hour with accommodation and meals covered.

Resumes are being accepted at info@totalrestore.ca.
