Ya, I think there needs to be quite a lot of fire activity for the satellites to pick up the heat; those fires are too small... so ya, there could be some fire activity north of the river as well...

Wow, just looked at the satellite data! This fire is still spreading like wildfire (pardon the pun). It's jumped the Bonaparte both north and west, and sits at the door steps of Clinton.

Too bad the CBC keeps calling it the largest fire in BC though. They might say that the Hanceville Riske Creek fire is actually two fires (a complex), and they'd be right, but the Hanceville portion alone is over 100,000 hectares.

This is a good link for watching where the fire is. Zooms well.

Estimated at 84,442 hectares now. That's over 3 times the size of the 2003 park fire.

Cbc reporting this fire got away on them due to a botched back burn. As glacier reported earlier

Hat Creek Ranch under threat. I hope they save it. Stopped in a few times. I have driven the Hat Creek Ranch FSR right around from end to end. Beautiful territory, nice scenery.

Through fountain? You hear about the bc hydro plan to make a dam and flood that valley?

Not fountain, we entered off Hwy 99 and drove though cattle country to Oregon Jack Prov. park. and out to the Trans Can. near Ashcroft.

I now know I have to get Fountain done before it's gone :-X

Fountain Lake water is so clear, it's been used as some kind of military scuba training. World class

A must read to understand how the cattle industry is affected by fires. It's heart breaking but a must-read.

And Trudeau won't match Red Cross donations? Is he insane?

I think you mean Pavilion? And the majority of that valley is Ts'kw'aylaxw First Nation land, there's no way in hell that would ever happen. Fountain Valley is quite a ways south.

Not entirely sure. I remember it described as 'the hat Creek hydro project'

BC Hydro and Cominco did a mining feasibility study in the late 70's, but there was never any intention make construct a dam in the valley
