The Little White Mountain wildfire located 25 kilometres south of Kelowna remains at 15 hectares.
According to the Kamloops Fire Centre, the visible smoke in the area is keeping temperatures low and reduce fire behaviour.
Today, 33 BC Wildfire personnel, two water tenders and a helicopter will remain on scene to douse the fire.
The fire was first reported on the morning of Sept. 16 and quickly grew to 15 hectares.
Lightning is believed to be the cause of the fire and is currently listed as “out of control.”
