Aggressive fire to contend with

We have new forest fire in the Okanagan that BC Wildfire crews are dealing with. 

It is located about 24 kilometres west of West Kelowna and is estimated at 30 hectares in size.

Fire Information Officer Brenna Ward says the fire is aggressive.

"It is what we call a rank 3 to 5. You will see some a vigorous surface fire to trees crowning". 

Officials say no structures are being threatened by the aggressive fire, which is burning on Gottfriedsen Mountain.
