I’ll update this map as more information becomes available.

  1. this map (which may be old) doesn’t show where the fire started. i was one of two cars to first arrive on the scene and stayed to douse the flames approaching the house on the WEST side of hwy 96. When I arrived the smoke seems to be confined to the back yard of that house — and then quickly jumped the road. the map shown here shows the western edge of the fire to be on the EAST side of the highway. This was not where it started. fyi.
