Peachland Fire Department goes as far as 7280 Hwy 97 south Peachland. That is two properties short of Gretta Ranch.

The fire several years ago they attended to that location as it was on the line. I believe from the photo I have received from a friend the fire is north of that address.

Some indication the fire had jumped the road, not sure where on Brent Road.

Very bad, for those unsure where this one is, it’s between Summerland and Peachland, closer to Peachland right when leaving or getting onto the highway to head to Summerland. This was nothing last night when it started, now it’s quite large.
