Not too bright - people have been caught up with wind changes before.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

On the satellite view, the fires are ALL along the same road. *bleep*!

This video was shot pretty much in the exact location in December 2014. Gives an idea of the terrain and fuels...

Somewhat OT, but someone needs to tell their reporter that the G in Gillard is hard.

There are a few lakes up there that GSC could be at...maybe Canyon or Crawford.

This is frustrating...reports from various weather sites are conflicting with the winds...Castanet says winds are coming out of the SSW at 21 km...gusting up to 34...Kelowna Airport is say E at 15 kms...in the Joe Rich Valley..the ol weather vane is showing wind out of the east breezy with occasional gusts. Up there on Little White it could be blowing all over the place.

From the Wildfire website map, it appears that one fire is on the curve of Km 7, and the other two are just south of Km 14

About the distance it takes to smoke 3 cigarettes, with a pee break at 14.
