I was just down at Peachland's lake shore and let me tell you, the black smoke rising from the fire is incredible. The orange glow on the horizon does not bode well for tomorrow.
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

We just watched a couple of trees candle on top of the ridge , then it died down a bit. I think the size estimate will be much larger tomorrow, there is an orange glow to the smoke that indicates lots of ground fire and from the looks of the smoke there is enough wind to keep it moving a little

I watched it until 0200, it was showing a good deal of activity. It seems calmer now, low winds. Great day for the aircrews.

Wish we could find out what :cuss: idiots caused this fire, hope they at least check this page, man up and take responsibility for this. Of course, that is unlikely as these cowards will run with their tails between their legs.

Hoping no houses or wildlife are lost - sorry to all the Peachland residents for the stressful times, hope crews get it under control ASAP.
