From below you, we can see that the smoke is just settling down over the mountain now that the winds have calmed down.

Settling down is good

Wonder who made the call to classify this one as a "spot fire" this morning and not send any resources there to knock it down while it was still small?

Not a fire expert here but sure seems like somebody made a big error.

Is it just me or does that photo look bigger than 200 Hectares?

Yes. It looks to be 212.54 hectares to me.

Just came from watching it from Gellatly. There ain't no putting this fire out. You can see the trees pretty much exploding. It's growing incredibly fast. So is the one right above Peachland.

Sorry.... not settling down as in dying out.

Settling, as in, drifting down to the ground instead of blowing up over the hills like it was earlier.

In the last hour and a half it has gained about another 200m toward lakeshore road even though it doesnt look that ferocious . In the distance i see the flames are right down to the flashing lights on the highway by brent road .
