Over the past few days, Canada Task Force 1 specialists assessed structural damages, where possible, to provide an initial understanding of the state of homes and properties within the Bush Creek East Fire (K21633).
Active wildfires are still burning in the CSRD. As we gather more information, we will be able to provide a more complete assessment of the affected areas.
We are in this together and empathize with you during this difficult time. Be cautioned that residents learning of the state of their property may feel immense emotions and experience psychological and emotional impacts. We encourage residents to access mental health supports if needed. The BC Mental Health Support Line is available 24 hours a day at 310-6789 (no area code needed). Kuu-Us Indigenous Crisis Line is also available for support and can be reached at 1-800-588-8717. More information about the resources available to you can be found at heretohelp.bc.ca.
As you prepare to return home, resources are available to help.

This is the most updated information the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) has available and is based on initial rapid assessments. The wildfire remains active, Evacuation Orders remain in place in some areas and the list is subject to future changes. The purpose of the online search tool is to provide property owners with initial information. The EOC will make every effort to contact property owners who have incurred total or partial losses. We apologize in advance for any discrepancies during this fluid and evolving situation.
