The Lytton First Nation has ordered 10 properties to be evacuated, and residents in another 60 to 65 homes are on evacuation alert.
Fire information officer Melissa Klassen of the B.C. Wildlife Management Branch says reports of a burning structure have yet to be confirmed.
A small amount of rain fell in the area Friday morning, though Klassen says a significant amount of precipitation is needed to help crews fighting the blaze.
Lower temperatures are expected, but a cold front could also bring high winds to the area.
