"I think basically, Mother Nature is sort of bringing forward our worst-case scenario", Cariboo Regional District Chairman Al Richmond said as winds began to pick up Saturday afternoon, prompting the expansion of evacuation orders and alerts.

A few small fires reported near Kimberley earlier this week are now out, Shaughnessy said.

That's according to the city's Mayor Walt Cobb, who said the winds have proved challenging for fire crews. However windy conditions Saturday fuelled the flames and led to the Evacuation Order.

More evacuation orders were issued Saturday night as winds picked up in the Interior, jumping highways and threatening to cut off escape routes. "I guess we've got to head south. Kamloops is a place I didn't want to go".

Like other First Nations that have defied evacuation recommendations, Mack said they had little choice but to protect their community and save homes.

But as residents within the city limits await to be told to flee, others have been awaiting to get back into their city through Highway 97 to prepare for the potential of an evacuation.

The Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations announced the entire Cariboo fire centre, 103,000 square kilometres in size, has been closed to backcountry users as a safety precaution, allowing crews to focus on firefighting. We would prefer if people went on to Prince George if at all possible, but they will try to accommodate them.

"We made the decision to get everybody while we could, because depending on how the fire went, we might have lost all our access out of town", he said.

Despite that most fires did not display major growth in the Quesnel area. A health services management clinic is available at the evacuation centre at the College of New Caledonia and is open from 8 a.m. - 11 p.m. daily, with a nurse available 24 hours per day. "Most of those who have evacuated have not registered".

The Thompson Nicola Regional District says in a news release that evacuees are encouraged to try and arrange their own accommodations with friends or family due to a limited capacity.
