I am not within walking distance, so not as close as you.
I'll bet you smell like smoke right now!
I've talked to a number of folks who have been up on the firelines as well.
It's crazy, the small spot-fires, turn into Blazing secondary wildfires within seconds.
It's mostly a fire they are watching, trying to fight, but it Never layed down last night. Thats been a problem, and the winds too.
Overnight, it went from 1900 acres to almost 11,000.
As of this evening it was still 0 percent contained.
Best of luck to the 1000 firefighters, working their butts off.
