UPDATE: 10 a.m.

The fire spotted near Brenda Mine this morning, west of Peachland, is 0.5 of a hectare in size, the B.C. Wildfire Service reports.

Fire information officer Kelsey Winter says it is burning at a Rank2, which is not aggressively, but rather with visible open flame and little or no spread.

An initial attack ground crew is now on site, supported by one helicopter and two air tankers.

The fire believed to be lightning caused.

I have no idea. There are 300,000 people in the Okanagan. 299,995 of them are sound asleep at 5:30 am. 4 of the awake people work for CBC.
