Default Forest Fires in BC

This is a picture I took leaving work today, sorry for the quality, took it with my blackberry. Taken at about 1600, apparently there isn't a cloud in the sky but I can't tell.
I'm not too sure if everyone is aware, but basically the BC Interior is burning. The last I heard, the closest fire to where I am is about 150km away by road, 60km as the crow flies. Total of almost 200,000 hectares currently burning. The smoke is even making its way to Alberta causing air quiality advisories there as well. The government is talking about implementing an entire backcountry ban, I just hope everything settles down by October when we're planning our hunting trip.

I live near the border and if the wind blows the right way you can smell the smoke!
