Sorrento residents may have noticed the wildfire was active to the west of the tracks overnight. We are happy to report that CSRD and BC Wildfire fought much of the night and there was no structure loss.
A small evacuation order will be added shortly, however, all residents impacted have already left the area.
Water supply was temporarily interrupted due to a pump failure issue which is now operational. Firefighters quickly adapted, as they often face many challenges such as this. Sorrento residents will notice water was temporarily unavailable in some higher elevation locations, and water has now returned to normal. A boil water advisory in Sorrento remains in place.
We ask that everyone stay away from the area to allow firefighters and equipment they need to easily access the area.
Residents in Sorrento and Blind Bay may certainly be concerned, however, firefighters feel comfortable with the current status and the weather is in their favour today.
