*bleep* pic but saw the lightning hit, called it in, but it had already been reported. 2 Helicopters are working on it for the last 3/4 of an hour. They have knocked it down pretty good and have now left.

La Casa is way further down the road near Fintry. Wilsons Landing is before Lake Okanagan Resort as my parents live out there. We were just out there tonight and there was tons of lightning and thunder around. Anyways pretty sure a new fire spotted.

Looks like Forestry just arrived by truck, they will have a good climb to get up to the fire.

Looks like it's grown quite a bit...seeing lots of trees candling. Pretty hard area to access. Can see lots of flashing lights on Westside Rd. ...can't see any action by helicopters or planes. too windy? This could turn nasty.

I called Forestry about 1/2 hour ago just to make sure they knew about fire K50391 starting up again which they did, had a couple of calls before. When I mentioned watching trees candling she said thanks for the new info as others just said small smoke rising.
Again *bleep* pic as camera is in getting fixed and this is from Samsung tablet.

Looks like it's blowing toward Lake. What sort of homes are down there?

Right below is that string of condos built a few years ago. Can't remember the name. Wonder if they're evacuating. Trying to post picture but says file is too big.
