The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen has given the all-clear for residents on an evacuation alert near the Nk’Mip Creek wildfire.
The Emergency Operations Centre announced the rescinding of the last active evacuation alerts on Thursday, Sept. 2.
The wildfire has gone a couple weeks without significant activity thanks to cooler temperatures and higher levels of humidity.
At the last estimate the fire covered an area of 20,066 hectares, with 61 personnel and nine pieces of heavy equipment stationed on the ground.
According to BC Wildfire, the Nk’Mip fire is still listed as out of control, but good progress has been made thanks to the cooler temperatures over recent days.
BC Wildfire did also note there is an active area restriction with absolutely no hunting in this restricted zone.
