The entire Coastal Fire Centre is not at extreme in the map you attached.

The (extreme) fire map of Canada shows the parts of Canada that will be similar to the Arizona Semi Desert and Desert Climate in Canada by 2050. The American Southwest will be Desert.

221,455 hectares have burned in BC this year and it's only July 6th. That's almost as many hectares burned in the entire 2003 season.

Aye, this is only July 6th........if Your figures are spot on......things don't look good for the rest of the summer. Can only wish everyone stays safe & have that grab & go kit at the ready.

It's Elaho smoke. Was pushed east and North today but now outflows are pushing it back south. This outflow continues and we may clear out

Okay thanks, I was a bit concerned there for a second, it appeared to be coming from the westside.

The smoke is so thick where I am near the connector that we took a drive to see if there was a fire nearby.

Thunderstorms might develop tomorrow, it's too hard to tell right now though. They are forecasted for most of the southeast center and might move into the okanagan. I guess we'll see what the forecast says in the morning.

If absolutely all other possible chances of rain fail, we will likely get some starting starting saturday - monday. A rain system will move through the entire eastern part of the province, from Fort Nelson all the way down to Osoyoos. Unfortunately there is no rain forcasted for the costal center but temperatures will drop into the mid 20's.

Thanks to quick detection by residents, a small forest fire above Naramata didn't get a chance to grow.

Kayla Pepper with the Wildfire Management Branch in Kamloops said the fire in the Smethurst Road area grew to about 10x10 metres in size.

It showed Rank 2 fire activity, which is a low vigour surface fire.

A group of four skimmers from Penticton hit the fire hard and blanketed the entire surface area.

A three-member attack team was also sent in.

Pepper said early detection by members of the public ensured a quick response and resolution to the fire.

If you see a fire, call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 from a cellular phone.



As long as the winds stay calm we should be okay until the weekend, when, hopefully, it'll rain. It seems like they can knock them down very quickly if there's no wind.
