The fire is highly visible, set against the night sky and amplified by the reflection from Okanagan Lake as the fire approaches the water.
UPDATE 9:02 p.m.
The McDougall Creek wildfire is expected to burn out of control overnight and it has already crested Rose Valley and is heading towards Bear Creek.
