Wildfire Evacuees

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              Officials say it’s unclear when 30-thousand people forced from their homes by wildfires will be allowed to return. Residents of 100 Mile House and Princeton were given the okay to go home on Saturday, but thousands of other evacuees across the province remain displaced, including about 10-thousand people from Williams Lake. Geoff Payton with the City of Williams Lake says officials are working on plans for re-entry, but there’s no set date for when people can return. Fire information officer Navi Saini says winds and lightning strikes makes it difficult to predict when other evacuees may be able to go back to their communities.
