Yesterday it seemed helicopters were buzzing from West Kelowna to the Philpott Fire.

One just cruised up the valley here, no bucket. Probably just assessing the Philpot/Joe Rich fire. It's been quiet otherwise up here. No worries.

They could also be training or be called out to another fire in the province as a contractor.

There are around 10 little lightening strikes between Enderby and Mabel lake.

East of Enderby Cliffs is being reported as 0.1 HA, the rest of them are 0.009.
