Over 200 buildings have been lost in the Cariboo due to fires

This summer was the worst wildfire season on record for the province, and the Cariboo sustained a lot of damage to structures.

To date, the region has lost 60 homes and 167 other structures due to wildfire.

The totals now include structure loss numbers from the Plateau, Elephant Hill and Quesnel Lake wildfire areas.

Damage assessments have been largely completed throughout the 12 areas of the region, including in the Elephant Hill, Plateau and Hanceville fire areas, and few changes are expected in the future.

Cariboo Regional District Chair Al Richmond says “With over one million hectares burning in the Cariboo, the work of all firefighters and emergency personnel resulted in low structure losses on many fronts”
