The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako has issued three more evacuation alerts related to wildfire activity.

One alert is in effect for the area Binto Wo Forest Service Road east to Holy Cross Cabin Lake FSR and Paddle Hill FSR north to Francois Lake and south to above the Binta Main FSR because of the Island Lake fire.

Another alert related to the Purvis Lake fire, includes Purvis Lake  to Tchentlo Lake, the Tchentlo Forest Service Road, and Driftwood Forest Service Road south of Nation Lakes Park to the intersection of the Leo Creek Forest Service Road.

The third evacuation alert issued Thursday night is in effect for an area including the Silver Hilton Lodge and the Babine River, including portions of the Thomlinson Creek and Shelagyote River related to the Babine River fire.
