Nazko (Chilcotin) fire update

From the Globe & Mail:

Nazko evacuation order provisionally lifted

An evacuation order was lifted yesterday for residents who were forced to run from a forest fire in the Nazko area, west of Quesnel.

The order was downgraded because of lower temperatures and torrential rain, which put a damper on many fires in the southern Interior.

The B.C. Forest Service warned, however, that the rain wasn't enough to soak the fuel on forest floors, and another few days of sun could reverse the situation. CP
