An Evacuation Alert has been issued by the Cariboo Regional District’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) for two properties in the Tatelkuz Lake area, which is about 131 km west of Quesnel.

An Evacuation Alert has been issued to prepare residents to evacuate their premises or property should it be required. Residents will be given as much notice as possible prior to evacuation but may receive limited notice due to changing conditions.

The evacuation alert is due to the Chutanli Lake wildfire (G41607) which is estimated at 736 hectares in size. The Prince George Fire Centre is responding to this wildfire with 22 firefighters, 2 helicopters, 10 pieces of heavy equipment and 11 industry personnel. Crews may be conducting burnoff operations on the south flank of the fire, if weather conditions are favourable, and are building fuel free guards with heavy equipment. The wildfire is currently about 11 km northeast of Tatelkuz Lake, 9 km west of Chutanli Lake and 30 km southwest of Tatuk Lake.

The Cariboo Regional District’s Emergency Operations Centre is working with the Prince George Fire Centre and the Cariboo Fire Centre to monitor the wildfire situation throughout the region. Currently there are no other wildfires threatening properties in the Cariboo Regional District. The EOC is prepared to respond should the situation change.
