B.C. wildfire spreads to 6,000 hectares, evacuates homes
The British Columbia wildfires have now spread to 6,000 hectares, and three more communities have been ordered to evacuate due to the aggressive blaze.
The fire is heading east to Liza, Marshall and Carol Lakes, and over 200 firefighters and 13 helicopters are working to battle the blaze, which has been burning since last week.
An evacuation order has been issued for Marshall Lake, Liza Lake and Carol Lake and remains in effect for Mud Creek, Tyaughton Lake and Gun Creek Road.
The evacuation alert remains in place for Gun Lake, Gold Bridge and Bralorne.
Strong winds are fueling the flames and firefighters are having a difficult time getting in under control.
