not much more to say then whats in the article. However I would point out that its really not close to Skaha Lake at all.

The fire is on Green Mountain Road at Shingle Creek.

Drove through it twice, looks to be human caused (suspect another cig butt) since the fire is burring right along side the road and going up the hill.

Saw at least 2 choppers, the spotter plane and a number of ground crew working on it.

On a positive the creek is right there so water for the crews on the ground is at close hand!
