A wildfire in a remote area of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District is threatening a cat-skiing lodge and has prompted an evacuation alert from the district.

The Bews Creek fire in a remote section of Electoral Area E is threatening a cat-skiing lodge and operation on Mount Malakwa.

Due to the potential danger to life and health, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District has issued an alert for a one-kilometre radius around the K3 Cat Skiing Lodge, according to the district's press release.

The lodge is located at the end of the East Gorge Forest Service Road on Mount Malakwa.

The owner of the lodge has been notified by the Shuswap Emergency Program and there is no current threat to any individuals, according to the district.
