Confirmed - I have a driver in Summerland who noticed a lot of traffic coming the other way and he is now moving North.

Yes it looks like it has basically made it all the way down to the lake.

Does that mean no more fuel? If it's reached the lake
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.

Confusion even over this!

https://globalnews.ca/news/4339833/fore ... peachland/

An expected traffic closure to Highway 97 between Summerland and Peachland will only happen if it’s absolute necessary, according to the B.C. Wildfire Service.

Earlier today, the highway was closed because of a forest fire near Peachland.

Later on, DriveBC issued a statement saying the highway was open to alternating traffic with an RCMP escort between Peachland and Summerland. Heavy delays were to be expected.

Then came a second release, saying police would be closing Highway 97 for the night at 8 p.m.

Now, B.C. Wildfire Service now says Highway 97 will only be closed if it’s absolutely necessary.

Mount Eneas Wildfire

Post by Ellerman »

Peachland resident here.

This fire is quickly getting out of hand and is going to damage homes tonight or seriously threaten them in the coming days. I really hate to play devils advocate here but this thing started last night and was very small, probably could have been put out easily and has now grown considerably since.

Where have the crews been on this fire? Seems it wasn’t a priority until late afternoon today when it was already out of control. I mean I’ve been sitting on my deck watching it grow with no crews on it whatsoever until mid to late afternoon today. I guess this is just a vent more than anything, too late to point fingers, hopefully they get a handle on it, although at this point I have my serious doubts.

You can now see flames from Brent Road fire and the west end of OMP fire.

Sounds like mutual aide has started, units being paged to go to north end of Brent Road to assist with the fire.
