An Evacuation Order for the District of 100 Mile House is in order after Mayor Mitch Campsall signed off on the order Sunday evening.
Campsall says residents must leave immediately and head for Prince George to check in at the Emergency Operations Centre at the College of New Caledonia.
The order is due to the rapidly moving wildfire in the area which is now threatening businesses and homes.
Close to 1,800 people are expected.
Some residents from the district arrived in Prince George earlier this weekend, and some have already fled to Kamloops.
