SALMO, B.C. — Attendees at the electronic music festival Shambhala are now being ordered to evacuate due to a wildfire.
The B.C. Wildfire Service says a nearby fire has jumped over the Salmo River toward the Shambhala Music Festival.
The festival previously issued what it called a "pre-evacuation alert" to festival attendees, letting them know that they should plan for an early departure.
