The Prince George Fire Centre says the evacuation alert is due to the fire activity from the Tommy Lakes fire, which is expected to continue burning and spreading in size due to its aggressive nature.
The Tommy Lakes fire is approximately 60 kilometres northeast of Pink Mountain.
The PRRD says the Evacuation Alert is for anyone in the area following the Sikanni Chief River on the west, to PDR 73/Horn Road on the southwest across to the Braland Creek, east along Conroy Creek, north along Conroy Creek and across back to the Sikanni Chief River. The area is within the oil and gas fields of Tommy Lakes, Conroy Creek, Laprise Creek and Black Creek.
An Evacuation Alert has been issued to prepare you to evacuate your premises should it be found necessary.
The PRRD says they’re trying to give as much advance notice as possible prior to evacuation, but you may receive limited notice due to changing condition.
Any concerns should be directed to the Regional District at 250 784 3200.
