Evacuation Alerts Remain in Place for North Lakeside and South Lakeside of Williams Lake

The Williams Lake Emergency Operations Centre closed for the night of Sunday, July 9 and will re-open on Monday morning at 8am.

Evacuation alerts remain in place for the North Lakeside and South Lakeside areas of Williams Lake.

“At this time there is no imminent threat to any structures or property within City boundaries,” said the City. “Some residents may notice some activity from Fire Department members in the Hamel Road area this evening as they set up a structural protection unit behind residences. This is merely a precaution in the unlikely event that fire from the Fox Mountain area changes direction.”

An emergency reception centre has been established at Lake City Secondary (Carson Campus) and any persons self-evacuating should report to this centre.

“Should any status change the public will be notified immediately through all means possible and everyone is encouraged to monitor local radio stations, legitimate social media sites, as well as the City of Williams Lake Facebook page, Twitter and website.”

An Evacuation Order meanwhile was issued by the Cariboo Regional District earlier for residents  of the Moore Mountain Fire area.
