Lightning looks to have caused a handful of wildfires to start in our region overnight, but still nothing compared to what’s happening elsewhere in the province.
Both are estimated at 0.009 HA in size.
Other fires have ignited near Radium and Spillmacheen.
Al Richmond with the Cariboo Regional District says as many as 25,000 people throughout the region are now under evacuation orders or alerts.
More than 200 fires burned across the province yesterday, and officials say about 14,000 people have been forced from their homes.
