What authority does a Mayor have to force a person to evacuate his or her home?

If the person refuses, can that person be forcibly moved? Mind you, this person has done nothing wrong. And unlike a person with a communicable disease who violates a quarantine order, this straggler poses no threat to others (well not really, as that person may require a rescue, which puts a recuser at risk of getting hurt).
