Trepanier Fire 40
A tree candled where there had been a pillar of black smoke. The direction of this flame from where I was shooting is consistant with the location of two of the houses that burned on that day. All of the property damage (four houses and several out-buildings as well as a key Okanagan vineyard) occurred on the first day of the forest fire.
