Salmon Arm and Kelowna?

Post by omisimaw »

someone contacted me and said they heard on the noon news today that there is a fire in Salmon Arm and one in Kelowna??? Not in the Wildfire Mgt site as they are only listing 10Km and larger fires.
Does anyone know of anything about these two areas?

...all wildfires are listed/posted to this map...you have to zoom in to get seperation of some of the markers as they do overlap others...fires of note, recently reported, and past/active fires are all listed along with size and possible cause...

the house didn't burn according to castanet "A home and outbuilding that was shrouded in smoke and previously thought lost in the blaze was saved by helicopter bucketing crews."
