Wildfire prompts evacuation alert near Princeton

Vancouver, BC, Canada / (CKNW AM) AM980

A wildfire burning near Princeton has people in more than 600 properties on alert they may need to leave in a hurry.

Dale Kronebusch with the Okanagan-Similkameen Regional District says many homes within the evacuation area are used recreationally so are sitting empty.

He says he’s optimistic crews will be able to tame to 200-hectare blaze burning about 20 kilometres from Princeton through to Osprey Lake.
