Sep 6, 2017

Williams Lake, B.C.– Effective immediately, the Cariboo Regional District has lifted an eastern portion of the Kleena Kleene evacuation alert issued Sept. 5 to all clear. As a result, the Tatla Lake School is now able to open for students.

An evacuation alert or order may need to be re-issued as wildfire activity continues in the area, air quality remains 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. Interfering in an active fire area will result in crews ceasing ground and air operations potentially endangering nearby properties.

If you have any questions for Emergency Support Services (ESS) please call 587-645-5185.
