The Cariboo Regional District issued an Evacuation Order for 14 properties in the Klinaklini Lake area Monday morning.
“This is a very remote area,” said deputy public information officer Tim Conrad noting that the properties are vacational properties that are fly in, fly out.
“We’re aware that there is not anybody in the area at this time, but RCMP are going to check to make sure. We’re confident that most of the people are out of the area.”
Conrad says there are two fires within the area that appear to have merged.
