First Nations, CRD downgrade Plateau fire evacuation orders

Some residents affected by the Plateau wildfire can start to make their way home.

The Cariboo Regional District, Lhoosk’uz Dené Nation, Nazko First Nation and Tŝideldel/Redstone have downgraded the evacuation orders around the fire to alerts due to a reduction in fire risk.

Evacuation orders have been downgraded for the following areas:

  • the CRD areas north of Highway 20 to south of Tzenzaicut Lake,
  • the CRD areas around Kluskus, Blackwater, Clisbako and Nazko,
  • Lhoosk’uz Dené Nation areas,
  • the remaining Nazko First Nation areas; and
  • the remaining Tŝideldel/Redstone areas.

Officials are reminding residents that while the risk is reduced, the areas are still under an evacuation alert, air quality remains poor, and wildfire activity is ongoing.
