Yep, we drove past it today. We were so close to it that the sky, trees, inside of car, road and hills were all bright orange. No road closures yet, though, but Route 20 was completely lined with fire trucks and police cars evacuating people.

It's amazing how hard it is to get accurate information about a wildfire in a particular location. Some of us own property in that area but live and work elsewhere most of the time. If anyone has info about exactly where this is spreading or is headed, please post it. Thanks!
