The Regional District of East Kootenay has issued an evacuation order for 10 properties in the Findlay Creek area

Meanwhile, a fire that is about six kilometres north of Okanagan Falls on the east side of Skaha Lake moved out of an area that was inaccessible for crews, past a retardant line and down into a ravine.

However, the service says the 21-square-kilometre Christie Mountain fire is being held and is not likely to spread beyond existing boundaries.

And we're not into winter flu season. Yikes. It's all lies at this point. Wait till they start tracking the seasonal flu in a couple of months after they finish with this common cold. The headline should be about the 7 in ICU, which is less than months ago. Case numbers are irrelevant media fear mongering. The ACTUAL number of cases is likely thousands in BC alone.
