it is 3 am – my dogs decided to do a howling routine, my internet is unlimited between midnight and 5, so doing a bit of catch up on the five. Laureles is looking good, Tassajara is not.
11:00 PM Monterey County fire update, Cal Fire Command confirmed:
Tassajara Fire now at 1200+ acres continuing to burn actively towards the SE. 10% containment. Mandatory evacuation for Parrot Ranch. Evacuation advisory for Cachagua and Jamesburg areas. Hard closure for CVR near Cachagua.
