[ARCHIVED] Update – Crazy Creek Gorge Fsr Fire – 11:00 Hours

August 1 2021 Crazy Creek Horge FSR Fire

Sunday, August 1, 2021

1100 Hours

The fire has grown to approximately, 2,446 hectares, and has reached the water line of Shuswap Lake in some areas.

People in the Evacuation Order area are being asked to respect the order. They can assist fire protection efforts by leaving the area immediately.

The BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) and Emergency Operations Centre staff have been working together to develop a structure protection plan for the community. The boat-in-only nature of the communities is making the response more complex and challenging.

As well, structure protection efforts are hampered by the thick vegetation surrounding the properties, but the BCWS Structure Protection Specialist has been working on a strategy.

Residents in need of food or lodging supports must check in at the Reception Centre at the Sicamous and District Seniors Centre, located at 1091 Shuswap Avenue, Sicamous.
