UPDATE ON LAST NIGHT’S FIRE: According to my sources, the base of a redwood was on fire. The flames were 25’ in the air. Not certain if it was a camper or maybe struck by lightning over the weekend. Forest Service is there now. It may need to come down.
I got news of a fire near MM 48, and called my sources. It was reported to be on the east side of the highway, near or under a redwood. As of 7 pm, it was under control and no one was concerned about it. Our guess is that it was an illegal campfire that was reported. Someone trying to stay warm. Frankly, as wet and cold as everything is, I am even surprised it was reported. But there you have it, just in case you heard something.
