Kal Lake Fire

A multi agency response around 10 last night as a grass brush fire erupted in the area south of the Kal Lake lookout, between Kalavista Drive and the lake.

Forestry crews backed up by Vernon, Coldstream ground crews and the Lake Country fire boat hit the blaze, and at one point RCMP went door to door for about 6 residences with an evacuation alert, though none was required.

Crews have remained on the scene through the night.

There's no word on a cause or just how much was burnt.


From my vantage point,  the fire appeared to originate south of the so called "nude beach". People often build a camp fire in that area and it is likely that one of those camp fires got carried away.

The residents affected are outside of Coldstream in Electoral Area "B".
