Wet wood, big smoke

No need to worry about the large volume of smoke in Kelowna's downtown core.

The culprit is the Tolko mill, in the city's north end.

Heavy plumes of smoke from the Tolko stacks could be seen from several vantage points around town.

According to fire department officials Tolko is burning wet materials causing the additional volume of smoke.

Fire dispatchers say they have received numerous calls from concerned citizens, but "not as many as I would have thought."
