Evacuation alerts for 41 properties in the area of the Eagle Bluff fire east of Oliver have been rescinded by the regional district.
All evacuation alerts in Area C (Rural Oliver) have been dropped by the Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen.
Due to cooler temperatures, the Eagle Bluff Wildfire experienced limited growth Sunday according to the latest update from BC Wildfire.
The fire is about 2,632 hectares in size. 169 personnel continue working on the fire Sunday along with heavy equipment. A 57-person team will remain on the fire overnight.
A planned ignition occurred successfully yesterday allowing crews to bring the fire southeast toward the control line, BC Wildfire stated.
Helicopters supported crews on the ground by using buckets and belly tanks to cool the area and suppress hot spots. Resources are continually challenged by the steep and rocky terrain in the area and site safety is a priority.
UPDATE: The #EagleBluff wildfire is no longer of immediate threat, and the Evacuation Alert issued by the @EmergMgtRDOS & the Osoyoos Indian Band has been rescinded. For more info, visit: https://t.co/0psQU5rjk3 & https://t.co/dCGD9uQ1QL. #BCWildfire #OliverBC
