CLINTON, B.C. — While many places are seeing evacuees return to their homes, all is not rosy on the fire-lines.

The TNRD last night ordered evacuation of a number of properties northeast of Clinton.

About 15 properties are affected and the evacuees are being told to come to Kamloops.

The properties affected are in the Fenton Road, Linden Road, Mound Road and Loon Lake Road areas. In addition, some other properties are also impacted.

But there was good news yesterday today.

The Gustafsen Wildfire near 100 Mile House is now reported to be 100 percent contained.

Some of the orders and alerts in that area have been rescinded, and this week, Wells Gray Park was reopened.

Williams Lake residents are still not able to return home, but officials are getting things ready in the hopes that the evacuation order can be lifted sometime this week.
