Highway 3 Closed 8km West of Keremeos

Post by Witch »

Any info on this grass fire. We drove through there at 5:30 last night. Most of the fields are bone dry dead and lots of antelope brush in that area. Saw a herd of Big Horn Sheep and lambs coming down to cross the road to go down to drink close to this area last night. The fire has lots of fuel to get a run on either side of the highway and the river is too low for helicopters to fill buckets. We could walk across it in knee deep or less water most places when we visited Princeton for the day. I hope they get a handle on fire quick.
Harm no one, look out for others and don't take life for granted.
