Known as the Sparks Lake fire, the blaze has also prompted an evacuation alert of nine properties in Electoral Area “J” (Copper Desert Country).

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is urging everyone in that area to be ready to leave their homes at a moment’s notice.

There are currently 27 firefighters battling the blaze, along with two helicopters, two pieces of heavy equipment and eight airtankers.
