Man, that fire is CLOSE!
I live like 2 miles away, and we could see a TON of smoke in my backyard!

I think thet, fire is out. I'm right across the Highway 50 from it, it seems to be under control at least.

The streets are all off of Wild Chapparal, Crosswood, etc., west of Ponderosa Road except for Loma, which I don't think is in danger unless the wind shifts radically. The fire started at the gate that blocks people from taking Palmer Drive up onto Loma.(Only residents have a "clicker") The fire is going east, which is brush. As Ryan said, it looks pretty much under control but they are still flying over my house regularly with copters to get water from Cameron Park Lake.

Erin, I'm not too far from the fire either. I looked out my bedroom window and saw the sky full of black smoke and freaked. I started loading the car with pictures and insurance papers. Thank God it seems to be out now.

I seriously hope this is a wake up call for people in this area to trim their oak trees, weeds etc. Anything that could fuel a fire. If you have manzanita on your property - get rid of it. The fire danger is so high in this area that I'm surprised people don't take more precautions by getting rid of the dry vegetation. This was a scary afternoon for us Cameron Park residents. THANK YOU you to all the firefighters that did a superb job in keeping this from spreading.

The hometown tag says "Rio Oso." I don't even know where that is. I am about 1-1/2 miles north of the fire in Cameron Park. It is still non-stop helicopters over the house.

I live off of Ponderosa exit there are still tons of planes flying overhead, but the fire seems to have calmed down.

Yeah, little late here, but the fire was pretty dang close to my place off whispering pines, we were told to evacuate, pretty freaky, luckily no structures were burned or people injured, Thank Goodness.
