Posted 12 Aug 2021 - 8:58 PM - Here is the text from a post on the BC Wildfire Service's Facebook page regarding planned backburns which may be occurring tomorrow on the McKay Creek Fire: "

UPDATE: The BC Wildfire Service is preparing to conduct planned ignition operations on the McKay Creek wildfire (K71030), in the Apple Springs area, as early as Friday, August 13, 2021, if conditions permit.
The decision to conduct a planned ignition is taken with the utmost care. The BC Wildfire Service is working in close coordination with First Nations, local community leaders and the Emergency Operations Centre.
During drought conditions that result in extreme fire behaviour, fighting fire with fire is one of the most effective and safest tactics. This planned ignition aims to remove vegetation between the fire and the established control lines. This will greatly reduce the amount of available fuel for the fire, which will create safer and easier access for ground crews. Ground crews, heavy equipment, structure protection units and aerial support will be on-site to support the operation.
Residents of nearby communities have been advised that smoke will be visible from Highway 99, Highway 40 and surrounding areas.

The fire has not yet burned down to Hwy./Road 40 (i.e., the Moha).

Posted 07, July 2021, 7:51AM - Most residents are probably now aware that the BC Wildfire Service now describes the southern perimeter of the McKay Creek Fire as 11.5 km north of Lillooet. The fire had previously been described as 23 km north of Lillooet. This change does NOT reflect any sudden southward growth on the part of the fire. Its extension to the south has grown gradually since the fire started. The change in description was simply to make the information more reflective of the current situation. (This information confirmed a few minutes ago by a Fire Information Office working on the McKay Creek Fire.)

Posted 02, July 2021, 3:57 PM - Here is the text of a release from the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District on the subject of donations:


"Sent: Friday, July 2, 2021 11:10:48 AM

If people are asking about collecting donations and making deliveries to Lillooet, we have just shared a post on our Facebook page, reiterating that the District of Lillooet has no capacity to accept donations. We were advised by DOL yesterday that their Rec Centre, which had been set up as an impromptu emergency reception centre for Lytton-area evacuees, was inundated with donations and they did not have the capacity for them.

We are asking people not to collect donations and deliver them, at this time, as we also need to keep the roads as free and clear as possible so that evacuees can move out, and in the event that more alerts and/or orders are issued in the coming days.

Instead, we are asking people to:

  *   Consider making a donation to the Red Cross, who delivers Emergency Support
  *   Consider making a donation to your local food bank
  *   Wait until an OFFICIAL call for donations is made
  *   For items already collected, check in with the shelter or agency in your own community (avoid travel) to see if they are able to take donations at this time"



Posted 02, July 2021, 3:30 PM - Here is the text of an important post that appears on the District of Lillooet's Facebook page:

"The District of Lillooet is NOT on Evacuation Alert.
Please read this entire post . . .
Please use this opportunity to prepare a plan for your household and ensure that you have important documents, clothing, pets, medication, food, and water ready and accessible in the event that conditions change.
DO NOT water your property more than permitted under Stage 2 restrictions. DO NOT sprinkle your house. We need to keep our water reserves at maximum in case a fire occurs. It is a much higher risk to run out of water than to have slightly drier property.
If you have a smartphone, please download the free "Voyent Alert!" app and add your Location to the app (found in the app's menu). This app is for Evacuation Alerts and Orders that directly affect Lillooet. It is not a news update app. If an Alert or Order is issued for Lillooet, the app will alert you immediately. We will also post on our website (www.lillooet.ca) and this Facebook page.
The Reception Centre at the Lillooet REC Centre is no longer operating. No further donations are needed and cannot be accepted.
