Yup, watching it from the east side of the lake right now. Too far away to tell if there's any aircraft working the fire.

It's in the Smith Creek area. Is that the same spot as the last fire up there? Maybe a flare up from the fire earlier in the week? It's a bit breezy today.

The wind is blowing as a new system comes on shore tomorrow to the BC Coast. It's really moving and the resources are spread pretty thin with Apex, Jura, Murray, Boot Hill all blowing up. Another 2 fire trucks moving down the highway. Homes are within reach.
