We would like to thank those keeping an eye on the mountain today for their diligent response to what looked from Osoyoos as smoke rising on the mountain. Fast investigation from AMFD found that it was in fact dust clouds rising from road sweeping maintenance work on the highway. We were happy to report that all was good. We appreciate the fast reporting. Better safe than sorry. Anytime you see anything that looks like it might be smoke, don’t hesitate to report it. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to those spotters.

Ground was very wet up at the tower. Along with the lightning came a good soaking so danger averted, for now....

Several areas throughout the province are currently experiencing hot and dry conditions, causing forest fuels to dry out and an increase in the fire danger rating. To help prevent human caused wildfires and protect public safety, new fire bans and prohibitions are being put in place in the Kamloops, Southeast, and Coastal Fire Centres. Effective at noon on Thursday, July 26, 2018, campfires will be prohibited throughout the Southeast Fire Centre and the Kamloops Fire Centre. For information regarding the ban in the Southeast Fire Centre please visit: bcfireinfo.for.gov.bc.ca/hprScripts/WildfireNews/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=2989 For information regarding the ban in the Kamloops Fire Centre please visit: bcfireinfo.for.gov.bc.ca/hprScripts/wildfirenews/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=2991 As of noon on July 25, 2018, Category 2 and Category 3 open burning will be prohibited in Haida Gwaii, although campfires will still be allowed there. Please note that Category 2, Category 3, and campfire bans are currently prohibited throughout the entire Coastal Fire Centre except in the Fog Zone. For more information on this prohibition, please visit: bcfireinfo.for.gov.bc.ca/hprScripts/WildfireNews/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=2990 With hot weather and dry lightning in the forecast, it is crucial to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires, so the BC Wildfire Service can deal with naturally occurring lightning-caused fires that start.

Effective noon Thursday, July 26, campfires will be prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre's jurisdiction and that includes the entire Okanagan. With hot and dry conditions expected to continue for the rest of the week, the local fire danger rating is moderate to high, but is expected to increase as the area dries out. The BC Wildfire Service has their hands full dealing with several large fires in the Kamloops Fire Centre as a result of lightning storms that moved through the Okanagan last week. The aim of a campfire ban is to reduce the risk of human-caused fires. Please do your part to keep the Okanagan Safe.
