Kamloops is a fair way distant from the Rockies. I wouldn't let events there affect traveling to the latter. It is going to be (already is) a bad fire season this year so you probably should check often about local conditions but on the other hand, one good rainfall and conditions can change dramatically for the better. Probably a little like trying to decide if you should go to the mid west during tornado season or the Caribbean during Tropical Storm season. Sometimes nature can muck with our travel plans but where isn't that the case.
