A storm system that moved into the Okanagan and Boundary areas from Washington state brought lightning with it for the second night in a row.
A few small fires cropped up in the South Okanagan following the storm, but none were of significant concern, according to authorities.
The B.C. Wildfire Service is sending ground personnel to a 0.01-hectare spot fire at McIntyre Bluff near Oliver, B.C., that was sparked by a lightning strike.

“It is classified as out of control at this time but it is a spot-sized fire,” said fire information officer Taylor MacDonald.
“Resources will be allocated as needed on that one today.”
Meanwhile, the Penticton Fire Department said it responded to a small grass fire that broke out at around 10:17 p.m. on private property just past the Campbell Mountain Landfill.
Deputy fire chief Chris Forster said a bush truck responded, and the fire was quickly extinguished as earlier rainfall resulted in moist ground and prevented the spot fires from spreading.
Near Osoyoos, the Anarchist Mountain Fire Department said it had another busy night as “crews responded very quickly to several new fires” as a result of the storm system.
“All known fires have been extinguished and crews returned to hall,” the fire department said in a Facebook post.
Global News viewers have sent in photos and videos of the lightning as the storm moved from south to north in the valley.
