More Evacuation Orders Rescinded
Williams Lake, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District has rescinded the evacuation orders for Maeford Lake, the Kleena Kleene and Tatla Lake areas.
The areas remain under evacuation alert.
The Cariboo Regional District advises that before deciding to return, residents are encouraged to consider that wildfire activity continues in these areas, air quality remains poor and the areas are still on evacuation alert.
Due to ongoing fire control activities, access to some areas may be limited and is at the discretion of check point personnel.
Wildfires remain active and firefighting activities continue in the area. It is important for residents to stay out of active wildfire areas. Interfering in an active fire area will result in crews ceasing ground and air operations potentially endangering nearby properties.
Since these areas remain on evacuation alert, residents must be prepared in case the area receives a future evacuation order on short notice. Local governments may not have time to go door-to-door should a new evacuation order be issued. Information about what to do when on evacuation alert is listed below.
