A wildfire is now burning south of Vanderhoof and has placed a small community under an evacuation alert.

The BC Wildfire Service lists the fire near Kluskus at about 8,700 hectares and 0% contained at this point.

The wildfires burning near Quesnel did not experience any growth over the weekend.

Crews continue to make progress on the West Fraser Road complex of fires, about 25 kilometres Northeast of Quesnel; it remains at 120 hectares.

The Green Mountain fire, in which Kersley residents are on evacuation alert, remains at 520 hectares.

Crews are working to maintain an existing guard with aircraft support.

The only fire in the North Cariboo region that saw substantial growth Sunday was the Tautri complex.

It is now estimated at around 40,000 hectares, although the BC Wildfire Service says there is a lot of smoke from that fire, making it difficult to accurately say how big it is.

That fire is west of Quesnel and about 80 kilometres Northwest of Williams Lake.
