I'm more than a little perplexed as to exactly how, when you can very clearly see just how far this fire has travelled, they are still reporting it at 400 hectares ???

Was pretty clear in the picture but just learned this is for updates only, which is cool with me.

Smoke looks minimal this AM, was cooler this morning and only 23c today should hopefully help get this one under control.

Just came back from Peachland. It is very windy, but blowing to the South. I would say it is blowing the fire(s) back on themselves. Good for both sides of the lake.

Aerial suppression seems to be very effective against this one. The 2003 fire consumed all the deeper fuel layers in the area so there's probably not much for this one to smolder in after having water dumped on it.

I took these pics today around 2:30. Two pics, of which the second is simply zoomed in. I also played with both of them in photoshop to bring out the smoke in more detail.

Link to image album (4 images)

I'd love to see pics from the south side looking north.

We were just on a ride above Smith Creek. From the looks of the smoke it appears the worst is heading for Naramata now.
