It was a fairly quiet night for patrols monitoring the 460-hectare Shelter Cove wildfire on Westside Road.

Wilsonls Landing and North Westside firefighters conducted patrols through the various subdivisions within the evacuation area, while B.C. Wildfire Service firefighters extinguished any hot spots.

“This wildfire is still considered as potentially aggressive and as a result in the interest of public safety the evacuation order remains in effect for about 70 homes along Westside Road,” states the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

Those properties within the evacuation area are along Westside Road from Denison Road north to La Casa Resort, but not including La Casa, as well as the following roads: Denison Road, Shelter Cove Road and Deighton Road.

Neither La Casa Resort nor Lake Okanagan Resort are under the evacuation order or alert at this time.

Westside Road remains closed between Cinnabar Creek and La Casa Resort.  Westside Road remains open in both directions from the north to La Casa Resort and from the south to the closure at Cinnabar Creek.
