Area near Kluskoil Lake Provincial Park on evacuation alert due to wildfire

The CRD has told residents in the Hanham-Titetown area to be ready to evacuate

The CRD has issued an evacuation alert due to a wildfire northwest of Nazko.

Residents living in the Hanham-Titetown area, near Kluskoil Lake Provincial Park, are asked to be on standby and prepare for a potential evacuation.

A 90-hectare, lightning-caused fire is burning just north of the park.

Residents inside the area are asked to make a plan to transport family members and co-workers out of the area, keep essential items on hand, and move pets and livestock to a safe area.
