Sitting at Bertram creek park and looking across the lake we can see a bit of smoke.

I wonder if it is on the North or South side of Glenrosa Rd? There are some homes in the area plus it is close to the hydro line.

Allow me to point out the obvious here and say that all the rain we had on the weekend literally only kept the danger rating down for 2-3 days and now there's already been a fire. I sure hope we get more rain soon.
