Evacuation Order issued for an area near Chetwynd

The Evacuation Order is in effect for the area directly south and west of Hudson’s Hope extending to an area encompassing a portion of the Moberly Forest Service Road (FSR) to just north of Mount Hulcross to the most western boundary of the Klin-Se-Za provincial park; directly north to an area south of Carbon Lake. 

At this time only industry is at risk. The fire is close to the Dokie Wind Project.

Residents, businesses and travellers outside of the evacuation area are encouraged to listen to local media and go to information sites – no other actions are required. Travel in these areas is restricted and backcountry travellers should leave the area.

At this time, the fire is currently a modified response fire meaning that it is being actively monitored but not actively suppressed at this time.
