Fires in West Kelowna, BC

Forest fires near Kelowna, BC were likely human-caused but investigators say they may have been set accidently.

More than 11,000 people have been forced from their homes due to the flames.

About 40 percent of the fires have been contained and so far only a handful of homes have been lost.

But hot weather (low 30’s C) and windy conditions are hampering firefighting efforts.
