Wildfires blazing near you
Big Sur Burning
A huge fire is burning in Big Sur California. At least 15 homes have been destroyed, the first was the home of the fire chief. There are 500 firefighters fighting this fire that started last night. Only 5% containment as of this posting. Winds are predicted to be a major factor tomorrow in hindering the efforts to put out the blaze along with the dry drought we are having.
Big Sur is a beautiful coastal city, highway one passes through between the mountains and the sea, it's one of the most beautiful drives you could imagine. I took these pictures a few years ago while on a road trip to Oregon. Reports are that the fire is on both sides of the highway which spans quite a few miles.
