RCMP were by about 30 mins ago. Far as they knew no structure

Loss as of yet and crews were making progress pushing

fire away from structures.

Conair 44,47, 49, 52 and 55 Convair's battling for sure and saw an Electra on the news. Minimum of 6 tankers with more probably to come.

From this angle it seems to be really subsiding

It's blowing hard up here. And coming from all directions.

Folks are still leaving no access from any roads in.

Lots of RCMP and air crews are still hitting.

They would come from the fires that are not immediately endangering structures. 44 and 52 are not based in Penticton yet they are here fighting the fire. The Electra seen on the news most likely came from Kamloops or another base. This fire needs very hard and fast action. The ones up north are burning away from structures currently or at least not right beside structures. This one is.
Currently all but 52 is here being refuelled and refilled.
