The general smoke is clearing and now I can see the rising plumes

I'm amazed that there seems to always be resources available. 4 planes on this one while there must be aircraft at all the other new ones too

Air Tankers are a provincial resource so they can be coming from all over. Also there isn't a huge number of fires burning so there are resources available say in comparison to 2003 when resources were stretched to the max.

It's in a very remote location, I don't think they're really concerned about it. If it tries to move towards kelowna the 2003 burn area will stop it.
