More West Kootenay Residents are evacuated while others have gone back home.

Properties from Midge Creek to Next Creek on the west shore of the southern arm of Kootenay Lake, in Kootenay Lake Provincial Park have been cleared out because of the now over 18-hundred hectare Cultus Creek wildfire.

However, residents of 122 properties near the 27-hundred hectare Trozzo Creek blaze northeast of Winlaw are allowed back home with 32 still under evacuation orders (Residences still under evacution order listed below).

It's status quo for the Octopus and Michaud Creek wildfire evacuees.

About 175 properties in the Fauquier area are considered too close to the 4,200 hectare wildfire at Octopus Creek burning south of the community.  

Those living on 356 properties are evacuated from the Michaud Creek fire which continues to burn about 4,600 hectares of forest about 20 km south of Edgewood.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay is holding an information session for those residents on line Friday at 1 p.m.
