It is now 133,980 acres, 7% contained, and inside Yosemite's Northwest boundaries.
I was down in Sacramento yesterday and had the pleasure of watching one of those 747 planes with fire retardant taking off. It was a pretty damn impressive sight.
There are two groves of Giant Sequoia that are unique to that area being threatened. Special effort is being made to protect these groves and rightly so.
To liken the acres to square miles, it's now at 203 square miles about the size of the city of Chicago.
They are expecting 30-40 mile per hour winds down there today, so I suspect tomorrows report will be worse.
Currently 4500 structures are threatened with 23 destroyed.
The fire was also burning toward the Hetch Hetchy reservoir, where San
Francisco gets 85 percent of its water, and power for municipal
buildings, the international airport and San Francisco General Hospital.
Folks, this is not pretty.
Remember, it's only 100 miles South of here. Yeh, it's smoky again this morning.
