The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch says crews have contained about 20 per cent of the 13-square-kilometre blaze, burning just south of Lytton, B.C.
One home has been destroyed in the flare-up and the Lytton First Nation has issued an evacuation order for about 10 others.
Additional properties in Lytton First Nation and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District are on evacuation alert.
Over the next four days, crews will conduct controlled burns around the fire to slow its spread.
Ninety-four firefighters, 10 helicopters and five pieces of heavy equipment have been brought in to respond to the blaze.
