Quesnel Residents on Edge, Some Evacuated by Helicopter as Cariboo Wildfires Rage On

Helicopter evacuations were needed for at least four families on Saturday when the wildfire cut off access to a forestry service road.

The chair of the Bulkley-Nechako regional district board has had a long week and expects the next one will not be any better, as more evacuation orders and alerts are in effect for an area of north-central BC nearly surrounded by forest fires.
