The Botanie Mt. and Nahatlatch webcams are picking up a large amount of smoke that isn't coming from the Cisco road fire.

Top right of picture. Definitely a new fire, the angle of the webcam makes it looks close but it's far away to the southwest.

May be from the Elaho fire near Pemberton but I'm not sure. It appears to be further south.

Wait nevermind. The top one is Elaho, the middle one is this new fire, and the 3rd one is a fire in the USA.

The webcams are showing the same thing, first image looking north is smoke from Elaho fire, so the smoke to the south is from this new one. Cisco road also has a flare up in the high alpine area. (Second image)

Finally figured it out. It's a 150 hectare fire in Cougar Creek, Nahatlatch park south of Lytton. It's basically on the border line of the kamloops and costal fire centres.

BULLETIN: Fire activity increases on three wildfires near Pemberton
Extreme fire behaviour due to gusty winds and drought code conditions led to significant growth on all fires within the Boulder Wildfire Complex yesterday, including the Elaho wildfire, the Boulder Creek wildfire, and the Nahatlatch wildfire.
All of these fires displayed a vigorous and aggressive rate of spread, with periods of organized crown fire. This type of fire behaviour consumes timber completely through to the tree tops, and has a high potential of spotting ahead of the fire. It also poses a safety risk for ground crews and aircraft conducting fire suppression efforts. For these reasons, resources were called off the Boulder Creek wildfire yesterday evening.
