Williams Lake, B.C. –  Increased activity of the Elephant Hill fire  has  lead to the  issuing of an evacuation order  for an area south of Highway 24.

Effective immediately, the evacuation order  includes the areas of Watch Lake, Little Horse Lake, Little Green Lake and the western side of Sheridan Lake.

Adjacent areas south of Highway 24 remain on evacuation alert and the alert has now expanded to include some areas north of Highway 24.

Due to immediate danger to life safety, members of the RCMP or other groups will be expediting the evacuation order. The evacuation route is: Highway 24 to 100 Mile House

Robert Turner,  Assistant Deputy Minister  for Emergency Management BC says the Canadian Armed Forces are  on stand by in the event their services are needed to assist in this evacuation.


Sure wonder how that one got going?

Human caused and under investigation. Started beside train tracks on the Ashcroft Reserve. Nothing to do with trains.
