Narcosli Creek evacuation alert lifted

Residents given the all-clear from the CRD

The Cariboo Regional District has lifted the evacuation alert in the Narcosli area.

No properties in the area are on alert or order as of Aug. 30. The news comes as BC Wildfire Service reports the Narcosli Creek Fire is 100 per cent guarded and 80 per cent contained.

An evacuation alert or order may need to be reissued as wildfire activity continues in the area. Air quality may be poor and additional areas within the CRD remain on evacuation alert or order.

To ensure public safety, stay out of fire-affected areas and obey all warning and hazard signs.

For rural properties that have been impacted by wildfire, residents should be aware there may be danger trees in wildfire-affected areas. Homeowners and private landowners are recommended to work with an insurance agency to have an assessment done by a qualified arborist on their private property.

Residents are encouraged to register for the Cariboo Chilcotin Emergency Notification System to receive a text, call or email regarding evacuation alerts and orders: member.everbridge.net/index/453003085612292#/signup
