The Emergency Operations Centre at the Fraser Valley Regional District has renewed the State of Local Emergency (SOLE) issued earlier in the week for Area C. The SOLE relates to the wildfire that continues to impact Long Island in Harrison Lake. An evacuation order was made for Long Island on August 5, 2021.

The evacuation alert issued for “Mowhokam Creek, Electoral Area A” and Boothroyd Indian Band from August 7 is still in place. BC Wildfire Service has recommended the alert stay in place due to the high temperatures and fire risk forecasts for the area.
