KELOWNA, B.C. — Dozens of people living in southern British Columbia have been forced to leave their homes as winds fan a wildfire nearby.
The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen issued an evacuation order Sunday afternoon for 55 properties west of Summerland as crews fight a fire burning about 30 kilometres southwest of Kelowna.
Residents in more than 300 properties in the nearby Central Okanagan Regional District have been warned that they, too, may have to leave on a moment’s notice.
