100 MILE HOUSE, B.C. — The Cariboo Regional District and the District of 100 Mile House are starting to talk about bringing residents back into the community.

Officials are looking into the integrity of the infrastructure in the community, and repairing it if it has been damaged.

The community also needs to ensure other services are available, such as emergency healthcare, food services and waste management.

The district says it has to complete that review before it can determine whether residents can return home.

100 Mile House was evacuated on July 9, due to the massive Gustafsen fire burning to the northwest.
