So the nearly 500 properties placed on notice back on Aug. 31 has been rescinded. It was the last outstanding evacuation alert in our area.
Caroline Edwards, who works at the Procter general store, has been sharing the news.
Edwards says there were some anxious moments.
The fire burned over 3,100 hectares.
