Global News published this video item, entitled “BC wildfires: Massive White Rock Lake fire continues to challenge crews| FULL” – below is their description.

The BC Wildfire Service will provide an update Tuesday on the latest fire situation in the province.

One of the most aggressive fires burning is the White Rock Lake fire, west of Vernon.

That blaze has grown to 32,500 hectares, and over the weekend, moved 14 kilometres in just one night.

Officials have issued a number of new evacuation orders and alerts as residents create their own fireguards around their properties. Smoke from the fire was causing big problems at the Kelowna International Airport and flights were cancelled since planes could not take off or land.

Flights were expected to resume Tuesday afternoon.
