Not long after a new wildfire was discovered burning just south of Vernon on Friday afternoon, a second was found in the North Okanagan.
The fire was initially estimated to be five hectares in size but was later updated on Friday to 10 hectares.
It was said to have Rank 3 behaviour, which is an organized front and a moderate rate of spread, with occasional tree candling.
Like the Cosens Creek wildfire near Vernon, the Vlem Creek blaze is suspected to be human-caused.
BCWS says the fire is highly visible to surrounding communities.
Information on the fire will be updated Saturday when it becomes available.
