New fire w/o Terrace Mtn

Post by AirHoss »

7 miles west of Terrace Mountain. Not sure how big, but tankers are running out of daylight in a hurry.

I could google it but I'll just ask instead, where is Terrace Mtn?

The same general area above the Westside Road horizon that burned a few years back.

There was a bit of lightning showing on the radar as that thunder storm cell passed through that area around 7 pm tonight.

The Terrace Mountain fire started on July 18-2009. It grew to more than 8000 hectares by the time it was over.

There is nothing left to burn there. It was a fire I will never forget. Terrace Mountain is directly across the lake from me. My entire house was covered with ash from this fire.

I would not think there would be much left to burn up there with this new fire.

Lots of fuel left up Doug Main. It's a few kms to the west of where the Terrace fire started. Miles of timber and cutblocks up there.

The other one looks to be on the old Stuart 200 FSR. That's just outside the Terrace burn too with lots of fuel to the south and west.

It will all depend on which way the wind decides to blow them...
