Elephant Hill fire no longer significant threat to Clinton

August 26, 2017 - 10:30 AM

KAMLOOPS - People in Clinton and Cache Creek are no longer living under an evacuation alert.

The Elephant Hill wildfire is no longer a threat to life or property, so the Regional District Emergency Operations Centre has rescinded the alerts for both Clinton and Cache Creek.

Evacuation alerts have also been lifted for Electoral Area E (Bonaparte Plateau) and Electoral Area I (Blue Sky Country), according to a Regional District media release.

The partial evacuation order in Blue Sky Country has been downgraded to an alert.

For the very latest on evacuation orders and alerts go to the Regional District website.
