AMFD would like to extend our thanks to the many alert citizens today for your rapid reporting of the numerous lightning strike fires we attended today. Crews were called out initially to a human caused fire in the Ravenhill area and were quickly stretched thin by 5 more wildfires resulting from lightning strikes to various areas on Anarchist Mountain. Our crews were eventually joined by a Forest Service Initial Attack crew as well as several air tanker drops to contain the fires. We would ask everyone to be extremely vigilant over the next while for any signs of smoke. Thank you to all our firefighters for their great work today! ... See MoreSee Less

Living on the lake shore we only saw one strike which hit a vineyard above Lakeshore Drive. So much more obviously happened behind the lookout that we can’t see, and you guys are awesome . I’m so thankful for AMFD !

A great demonstration of how flammable an area can be following a wildfire. Adequate cooling of the area is imperative

When your fuel moistures are so low, the ground is a flammable nightmare 😳 • Here is what’s going on with the video - This is up here in Alberta Canada. The peat moss is so dry right now (DC > 700) that when you kick it it turns to dust. That dust, when combined with oxygen and heat, is very explosive. Like flour in a campfire... • 🎥 - Video courtesy of: @whitecourtunitcrew... • Stay safe up there! • #canadianwildfires #wildlandfire #firefighter #fireman #wildlandfirefighter #wildfire #fire #wilderness #firefighting #leadership #getoutside #outdoors #fireseason #explore #firefighters_daily #chiefmiller #viewsfromwork #hotshotbrewery #thinredline #thesmokeygeneration #fireman_323 #theanchorpointpodcast #canada #hotshots #helitack #smokejumpers #enginecrew

Another smoldering fire as a result of lightning strikes over a week ago was discovered today in the Sidley area. A resident smelled smoke and went to investigate finding the smouldering area. BC Forest Service ground crews attacked the area today containing it to approx 100 sq meters. With the possibility of more lightning this evening, we urge everyone to be diligent in watching for any signs of a lightning strike in the area. ... See MoreSee Less
