Updates available at Kamloops.ca.

The City of Kamloops has activated its Emergency Operations Centre to support the fire department currently battling the fire burning in East Kamloops, between Juniper Ridge and Valleyview. Kamloops Fire Rescue is working closely with BC Wildfire Service and the RCMP to carry out a tactical evacuation of affected areas. Further details will follow.  

The RCMP is carrying out a tactical evacuation for all properties south of Valleyview Drive from River Road to Highland Drive. Properties in Juniper north of Nechako Drive are also currently under tactical evacuation order. 

Evacuated residents are asked to seek shelter with friends and family for tonight, as the ESS reception centre are currently at capacity supporting evacuees from the Lytton and surrounding area wildfires. Further details on an ESS registration will follow tomorrow. 

The City asks all residents and businesses to immediately cease all irrigation to protect water supply for the fire crews. 

The fires were caused by numerous lightning strikes in the Kamloops area earlier this evening.
