New wildfire evacuations

The Cariboo Regional District issued another pair of evacuation orders late Friday night, in connection to the Kleena Kleene wildfire burning about 200 kilometres west of Williams Lake.

Residents north of Kleena Kleene are being advised to drive west along Highway 20 to Bella Coola, while those in Tatla Lake are being sent east to Prince George.

“Due to immediate danger, members of the RCMP or other groups will be expediting this action,” a news release reads.

The 9,000 hectare wildfire is being fought by 62 firefighters, 26 pieces of heavy equipment and air support. The fire, and the nearby Colwell Lake, has been growing to the east and north, fueled by high winds, which are expected to continue into Saturday.
