The City of Quesnel has re-opened their Emergency Operations Centre at the recreation centre.
It was closed on Saturday after the province issued a notice that told all Cariboo evacuees to head to Prince George instead.
Mayor Bob Simpson says in a Facebook post that “the city worked out an arrangement with the Cariboo Regional District to provide support to people who need to remain in Quesnel, while still moving the bulk of the evacuees to Prince George where they can be better served over the long term.”
A fire south of the city at Green Mountain is still causing for concern for those in the Dragon Mountain area.
