Penticton & South Okanagan News
Smoke in the south
Despite smokey skies in the south Okanagan, there are no new wildfires of note in the region.
The haze is being blamed on the raging fires south of the border in Washington state.
Castanet has received several emails from residents of Penticton and Oliver claiming the air is thick with smoke.
Wildfire Management tells Castanet those living in Penticton may see bombers leaving the airport, but they are not working on any fires in the area.
The bombers are in flight and are doing checks over the south Okanagan, it is also possible they are headed to Washington to assist fire crews, says Wildfire Management.
