The fire is no longer a wildfire of note. Several other fires in BC have been taken off the list of "wild fires of note" including the Precipice fire in the Coastal Fire Centre. The same cannot be said in the East Kootenays where fires are going crazy. The Kenow Mountain fire in the southeast corner has exploded overnight to spread 20km into Alberta. Unlike the Okanagan and Cariboo, this area is one of the windiest places in Canada.

Holy crap, exploded indeed. Always knew Waterton was a when, not an if. I remember just being horrified some days, after taking the wind readings - apparently yesterday was one of those days. Hopefully it stays out the valley, but it doesn't look good.
