Friday, September 15, 2017 @ 11:15 AM

Williams Lake, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District  says  60 homes and 167 other structures were lost  to flames  .

The updated  total includes  losses from the Plateau, Elephant Hill and Quesnel Lake fire.

The CRD says  damage assessments  have  been  nearly completed in  the  12 areas of region,  and  the list is not likely to change much in the future.

The CRD has corrected local numbers to remove some added in error, and renamed ‘out buildings’ to ‘other structures.’ As well, some structure losses have been re-categorized from homes to other structures as more information was collected on the lost structures.

“With over one million hectares burning in the Cariboo, the work of all firefighters and emergency personnel resulted in low structure losses on many fronts,” says CRD Chair Al Richmond. “In particular, we were very fortunate there was only one structure lost in the Cariboo Regional District as a result of the Elephant Hill fire. As we move into recovery, we encourage the entire community to support those who lost property.”

Here is the latest list of  losses:
