The Evacuation ALERT issued on September 8, 2023 at 2pm, by the Fraser Valley Regional District Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) for the areas north of Hannah Lake in Nahatlatch Park including the Rivers Edge Cabins, and areas on the south fire boundary along Chaumox Road and Nahalatch FSR, including the Washtock Family Farm and Campground has been rescinded based on the recommendation of the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS).
While the Evacuation Alert is being rescinded, the danger may reoccur (caused by new ignitions, lightning strikes, or a change in the prevailing winds, for example) and an Evacuation Alert or an Evacuation Order may need to be issued. BCWS will continue to operate in the area until the wildfire is contained, and there may be BCWS service members and helicopters active in the area. Please continue to monitor weather reports, slope stability, and heavy rains.
