Some areas east and west of the Fraser River within the Cariboo Regional District remain on evacuation order or alert. View a searchable online map for current alerts or order at cariboord.ca

An evacuation alert or order may need to be re-issued as wildfire activity continues in the area, air quality remains poor and additional areas within the CRD remain on evacuation alert or order. 

To ensure public safety, stay out of fire affected areas and obey all warning and hazard signs. Interfering in an active fire area will result in crews ceasing ground and air operations potentially endangering nearby properties.
