These fires seem to be a regular summertime threat.
For years they never let a forest fire burn
all the fuel on the ground.
Now, people are building homes in the places that
haven't burnt for 50 years or so.
They are using a lot of resources here in West Kelowna
to save all the homes and resorts affected by this last fire.
Even though it is in the West Kelowna area,
it is about 35-38 Kms away from
where we live.
Here are a few photos of this spectacular and dangerous
High winds and lightening in the forecast.
