The Cariboo Regional District wants people in the Charlotte Lake, Nimpo Lake, and Anahim Lake areas to be ready to leave in a hurry.
The CRD has issued evacuation alerts to residents as the Precipice Wildfire west of Bella Coola continues to grow.
As of Saturday, the fire had escaped the boundary of Tweedsmuir Park and was mapped at 4300 hectares.
The BC Wildfire Service says crews are working the fire and developing further control strategies, but firefighters face challenging conditions, including a lack of road access, continuous forest fuels and smoke that has impeded aircraft operations.
More information about the Precipice fire is available at www.bcwildfire.ca on the “Fires of Note” page.
