2020 Kal Lake Fire

Kal Lake Fire

September long weekend I went for a drive along Hiway 97, North towards Vernon. Brought my camera along in case something ‘interesting’ caught my eye.  Well, something interesting definitely caught my eye.  There was a grass fire burning right along the edge of the hiway with two helicopters dropping water on it.  As I watched, I saw two water bombers circling with their spotter plane.  I moved positions further north and caught the water bombers dropping retardant on the fire as well.

The fire had been caused by an overheating truck that had caught fire on the side of the road.
