The regional district has rescinded an evacuation alert in the community at Big Bar Creek in the South Cariboo.
Thompson-Nicola Regional District emergency services declared a state of emergency Aug. 21 as a wildfire threatened the rural community. It originally ordered an evacuation, downgraded to an alert one day later.
B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operation reports the 406-hectare fire is now 90 per cent contained. On Monday more than 80 firefighters remained at the burn, doing mop-up work on steep hillsides.
TNRD chairman Randy Murray said the evacuation alert was lifted after provincial authorities determined there was no longer an imminent danger to property or lives.
The fire was located about 40 kilometres west of Clinton, along Big Bar Ferry Road.
