Fire Blog

Photo of Coleville fire, copyright News Channel 4I feel like this is becoming the “Fire Blog”. They finally got the Lake Tahoe fire put out that I wrote about, and also the fire in Walker California. They just sent the fire crews home, when lightning came by and brought its fury back to us. Now Coleville is on fire, about five miles from the place that just burned.

Add to that the lightning fire that’s about five miles from my house, and half the sky is solid brown right now. I can only hope that the fact I live in the middle of a large neighborhood provides enough of a firebreak to keep the flames up in the hills.
