Northeast/Prince George wildfires force evacuations

Scorching temperatures and strong wind have fanned dozens of wildfires and forced a number of northeast BC families from their homes.

The BC Wildfire Service says there are approximately 40 or so fires burning north and west of Fort St. John.

Residents in Baldonnel, Charlie Lake, and South Taylor Hill received evacuation orders Monday and overnight.
There are reports that the flames have claimed at least three structures.

Evacuated residents are registering at a reception centre set up in Taylor south of Fort St. John.

About 40 families in a Prince George subdivision were also evacuated Monday when a grass fire spread to some trees and threatened homes.

The Valleyview residents the Hart north of the city were allowed back in their homes later in the evening after crews managed to stop the flames.

Another fire also broke out at the Foothills Landfill Monday night, but firefighters constructed a break around it.
