Shortly after calling in a fire started by lightning strike

Fire crew keeps Angel Falls safe

On Sunday Sept 16, 2012 late in the morning it came to our attention that up the mountain side there was some smoke above the trees.

On Sunday Sept 16, 2012 late in the morning it came to our attention that up the mountain side there was some smoke rolling high above the trees. My husband and brother drove up the Nesbit logging road across from our home at Angel Falls on Highway 6.

Just as we thought, it was the start of a forest fire. Lightning did strike a week prior to this, so it was probably smoldering for a while before it caught.

We called into the Nakusp RCMP who transfered us to the emergency fire dept. Thank you to all who responded so quickly to get it under control. They responded very quickly and efficiently. Thank you to everyone for keeping us safe.
