Let's hope they get it under control. I have family that lives in the area.
I used to be in a band called "The Missing Cats"
You've probably seen our posters!

Unfortunately very large areas in that part of the Province has dry dead trees due to bug kill, tinderbox just waiting to go up in flames.
Hopefully it heads away from populated areas

Convairs from Penticton were tasked to that fire Friday evening. Long way to go and guess they needed the extra resources as there are bases in Kamloops and Prince George already.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.
