News 1130 quoted one BCIT expert about the fire season.

this year’s forest fire season will be as bad as it was in 2003 when a massive blaze near Kelowna forced tens of thousands from their homes, burning 25,000 hectares of land.

Evan Hammond at the Peak mentioned this on The Peak. Our bomber is sitting on land right now while the province pays $3 million a day in firefighting costs she could be in the air for $8000 a day.
