The Goode’s Creek wildfire in Okanagan Mountain Park is holding at 400 hectares and remains active.

That was according to the BC Wildfire Services afternoon update.

”This fire is burning in an old burn. This makes it less likely to exhibit the extreme fire behavior consistent with big timber fuels,” writes the BC Wildfire Service.

“The fire continues to burn up and away from the residences.”

Evacuation alerts for properties along Lakeshore Road were lifted Friday, July 20.
