Fire near Predator Ridge now in mop-up stage

A fire burning two kilometres north of Predator Ridge Golf Course near Vernon is now in the mop-up stage.

The Kokanee Road fire was discovered around 3:20 p.m. on Saturday.

Crews from both the Vernon Fire Department and the B.C. Wildfire Service have been fighting the fire.

Two air tankers and a helicopter attacked the fire from the air.

It grew to six hectares overnight, but is only displaying rank one behaviour, which means it is now a smoldering grass fire.

B.C. Wildfire has 20 personnel on scene who are working on danger tree falling and putting out hot spots.

An evacuation alert for 45 homes in Sunset Properties has been rescinded
