The evacuation alert which has been in place for 65 St. Mary Valley properties has been recsinded.
This as the Meachen Creek fire burning in the area is no longer classified as burning out of control.
The announcement follows last week’s removal of all evacuation orders which had been lingering in the area due to the blaze.
The Regional District of East Kootenay removed the evacuation alert at the recommendation of the BC Wildfire Service.
The fire is being held and is not expected to see any further growth.
