The Shuswap Emergency Program has been in communication with the BC Wildfire Service this morning regarding an active smoke plume, which is very visible in the area of Sorrento and Notch Hill.
The smoke plume is coming from an area burning within the fire's perimeter and is surrounded by machine fire guard lines and water delivery systems. BC Wildfire has 42 personnel working in this area, as well as heavy equipment and water tenders supporting.
Smoke plumes and fire activity are expected with the weekend's continued hot and dry conditions.
If smoke is coming from the fire perimeter, BC Wildfire is closely monitoring the area for hot spots. If you see smoke coming from areas that appear to be not within the fire perimeter, report it to 1-800-663-5555.
