Update on Kamloops East Fire

Update on Kamloops East Fire

July 2, 2021 at 1:18 am  Kamloops, Municipal, News

Kamloops Fire Rescue is working closely with BC Wildfire Service and the RCMP to carry out a tactical evacuation of all properties on Nechako Drive east of Qu’appelle Boulevard and all of Capilano Drive.

Evacuated residents are asked to seek shelter with friends and family for tonight, as the ESS reception centre is currently at capacity supporting evacuees from the Lytton and surrounding area wildfires. For anyone who cannot find shelter, water and shelter is available at the Sandman Centre concourse. Further details on 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.

For updates on this incident, please watch the emergency alerts posted on Kamloops.ca. For information on the evacuation, residents can call 250-828-3461.
