Three Engines, three Bush Trucks, one Tender attended the scene. A total of twenty five KFD personnel.
Upon arrival, crews reported the fire to be about 150′ X 150′ and starting to get into the trees.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time and is being investigated by both Kelowna Fire Department and RCMP.
Two of the three biggest fires burning in the Central Okanagan — the Good Creek fire and the Law Creek fire — stayed stable overnight…a considerable improvement from when they exploded in size earlier in the week.
B.C. Wildfire Service says the Mount Eneas fire may be burning into itself.
The weather helped the Law Creek and Good Creek fires be stable.
The Law Creek fire is estimated at eight hectares, while the Good Creek fire is estimated at 400 hectares. The Mount Eneas fire is estimated at 1,000 hectares.
Friday afternoon around 5, the Good Creek fire evacuation alert for the 15 properties at the south end of Lakeshore Road was lifted.
As a precaution, 49 homes in the Meadow Valley area were placed on evacuation alert by the Regional District of the Okanagan-Similkameen.
Meanwhile hundreds of Peachland residents are preparing to leave their homes on short notice as multiple fires burn in the area.
