An aerial assessment this morning of the Trepanier forest fire evacuation area has revealed it is not safe enough for any more people to return to their homes.
It’s anticipated the earliest any change might be made to the evacuation order for Peachland residents is later this afternoon.
The air scan for hotspots has found at least 65 areas of concern in backyards and close to homes, including the Coldham Road area.
As a result of the aerial assessment, there is also no change in the evacuation status for approximately 17 property owners in the Regional District of Central Okanagan. This includes Star Place and addresses along upper Trepanier Road.
