An evacuation alert for some properties west of Kamloops has been downgraded this morning.

The alert for properties in Electoral Area J, Copper Desert Country for 10 properties, has been rescinded to all clear as the threat of the Tremont Creek wildfire in the area no longer poses an imminent risk to the safety of residents, according to the Thompson Nicola Regional District's latest press release.

The Tremont Creek wildfire is 62,523 hectares in size and burning out of control. Other evacuation orders and alerts from the regional district in the area remain in effect.

The alert was put in place Aug. 15  for 10 properties including:

• 1848 Edith Lake Rd;
• 1645 to 4180 Goose Lake Rd;
• 3561 and 3585 Lac Le Jeune Rd;
• 3350 Timber Lake FSR;
• 4000 and 4050 Trans-Canada Hwy; and
• any other properties located within the area noted on the attached map.

Should conditions change, an evacuation Alert or order could be reinstated as necessary. For more information, visit the regional district's website.
