57,000 acres
$32.5 million
25% containment

 

Fire continues to burn on both sides of Highway 180 and the South Fork of the Kings River, leaving rock slides from the steep granite walls that now block vehicular access to Cedar Grove and points beyond. Smoke so thick in Dry Creek Canyon, you can almost identify the wood that has burned by smell: pine, cedar, fir and redwood. We quit work early yesterday.

  2. Smoke dropped into Deep Springs Valley with a new acrid smell early this morning. Maybe it’s the added moisture that kept the carbon from completely burning? Until now it’s been noticeable, but not a strong smell.
