A small brush fire is burning in Rose Valley Park, in West Kelowna.

The fire is some distance from access points to trails in the park that circle the Rose Valley reservoir.

Smoke can be seen rising from downtown Kelowna and Okanagan Lake.

There is no word yet on the size of the fire, but several units were dispatched to the scene to fight the flames.

It is the second wildfire reported Friday in the Central Okanagan.

Earlier in the day, a grass fire was doused on Pooley Road in East Kelowna that burned an area 300x350 feet.

With record heat forecast this weekend and tinder dry conditions in the woods, residents and visitors are advised to use extreme caution.

Just before 6 p.m., a report also came in of smoke sighted near Crystal Waters, north of Lake Country, along Highway 97 by Kalamalka Lake.

Castanet will have more details on all the fires as they become available.
