Chimney Fire

Postby ExploreABitMore » Thu Jun 02, 2016 2:50 pm

I heard this might be mostly contained already. Don't see much from Ridgecrest currently (unlike yesterday).

But , seems to conflict with the %10 on report.

Hoping for the best!

Marina Fire

Here's a pic I took of the Marina Fire this morning when I was driving north on 395. I think I was one of the last people they let through before they shut down the Highway.

How/will this affect people trying to get into Tuolumne Meadows? I'm supposed to start the 30th. Hopefully this will get contained soon!

Cornelius-

No way of knowing. I would suggest you monitor the link that Maverick provided:
http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4809/

Unfortunately, it has now grown to 600 acres.

And I agree with you, I hope it is contained soon!

Has grown to 819 acres.


Caltrans closure of 395:


[IN THE CENTRAL CALIFORNIA AREA & SIERRA NEVADA]
IS CLOSED FROM THE NORTH JCT OF SR 120 TO 4 MI SOUTH OF THE JCT OF SR 167
(MONO CO) - DUE TO A WILDFIRE - MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE AN ALTERNATE
ROUTE



PS Please update the "subject" tab at the top to the name of the fire, this will avoid confusion if and when there is more than one fire burning at the same time. Thanks
