South Okanagan smoke from wildfire northeast of Osoyoos

Crews have spent the day battling a 20-hectare wildfire northeast of Osoyoos.

The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch posted bulletins on social media this morning stating the smoke from the Inkaneep fire is visible from Oliver and Osoyoos and is not related to prescribed burning in the area.

Emergency personnel also spent the day mopping up a smaller grass fire that ignited Friday on Pincushion Mountain near Keremeos.

The Kamloops Fire Centre reported Friday it had responded to 19 human-caused fires since April 1.
