Hey everyone - thanks for the supportive words. I just realized my post sounds as though Kelowna is half destroyed. That's not the case at all. Just the surrounding regions are burning, mostly on the hill sides and toward the South/East. It's mainly the residential/orchard/farming areas on the perimeter that are at stake. A new fire sprouted yesterday morning on the other side of Okanagan Lake, but that has been put out now. The winds have died down today, so we're all hoping it can be contained from this point on...but you just never know what the wind will do. Anyway, all is fine, and so far no one has been hurt to my knowledge.

Thanks again

Good luck MichaelGriffiths, to you, your family and neighbours.
Your poor aunt, such a great personal loss. I hope she had time to remove the things she held most dear.
It's a familiar scenario in Australia. They were discussing bringing the fire ban period forward again this Spring and making water restrictions permanent, on the radio this morning. They also mentioned the numbers of deaths in France due to the heatwave. It's so sad. This isn't really the time for a discussion about climate change, but we're in this together.
Be careful eh?
to the emergency service workers

Michael! Good to hear from you. We were wondering about you in IO in a thread I started over there. I am sooooo sorry for your aunt. I can't even begin to imagine what that would be like.
Watching all the footage just breaks my heart. All those homes and the lovely countryside. I love Kelowna. I hope they manage to stop the fire soon.
