There is a 5700 hectare forest fire burning south of us. It was in Washington, but it's jumped the border into BC. I am not sure how far away it is, but we don't usually see smoke until the late afternoon...this footage was taken at 7am.

There are actually 2 fires. One that is moving towards Keremeos, BC and the other threatens Manning Provincial Park (2 hours drive from here and a great park).
