Effective immediately, the Cariboo Regional District has lifted three evacuation alerts affecting 403 properties in the Tatelkuz Lake, Chutanli Lake and Baezaeko/Blackwater areas. These areas, which are about 100 kilometres northwest of Quesnel, are now all clear.

To ensure public safety, stay out of fire affected areas and obey all warning and hazard signs.

Home owners and private land owners are recommended to work with an insurance agency to have an assessment done by a qualified arborist on their private property.
