Motorists driving south through the Cariboo should expect to encounter heavy smoke from a wildfire that is threatening homes in the 100 Mile House area.
33 properties have been evacuated in the Tatton Station Road area just west of 100 Mile House.
BC Wildfire officials estimate the Gustafsen wildfire has grown to 500 hectares and is continuing to grow. Officials say the smoke is so thick, it’s difficult to pin down the exact size of the blaze.
60 firefighters, aircraft and heavy equipment are battling the blaze.
