Terrace Mountain Fire II by La-Vita-a-Bella Terrace Mountain Fire II by La-Vita-a-Bella
We went up to Kelowna BC Canada over the weekend. We could see across lake Okanagan this fire that was burning out of control. Many homes were being evacuated as helicopters brought in water to try and fight the fire.

fire is 75% contained now, a little over 22,000 acres, and shouldn't cause anymore problems ;).

Actually, it was very warm where we were in Canada. In British Columbia, it was reported that there were 98 fires currently burning. This particular fire had been started by a person, but many others had been started by lightning.
There is a fire burning here where I live as well.

The fire is only 40% contained at this point and the evacuation order is still in effect. As far as I know, no one has been hurt.
