Prince George, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District has issued an evacuation alert for  residents on White, Ross and Glen roads area of Williams Lake.

The map  of the area impacted is  available here.

The evacuation alert  comes as  more than 200  wildfires continue to  rage in the  Province.

Those already  forced from their homes in the Cariboo have been making their way to Prince George, where  an emergency operations centre has been set up at the College of New Caledonia.    About 150  evacuees  registered at that centre  last night,   and approximately 80  people stayed overnight in the CNC gymnasium.

The  Northern Sport centre is also being prepared to accept  evacuees  and UNBC is making  a student residence available for  those in need.

All evacuees are being  asked to report first to the  College of New Caledonia as that is the official  registration  site.
