The only family evacuated during the Drought Hill fire can finally breathe a sigh of relief as they are no longer under an evacuation alert.
The alert issued during the fire affected one property on MacKinnon Road, and forced them to evacuate for several days before they were able to return home Sunday. The alert meant they still had to be ready to leave at anytime, but that has now been officially rescinded.
Fire officials says the blaze remains 100 per cent contained and the BC Wildfire Management Branch continues to mop up of the area in the event of any flare ups.
The Emergency Operations Centre that was activated to support the Drought Hill fire emergency response has also now stood down.
