Today is the last day I will be covering this fire, unless there is a flare up, as it is all but controlled, 75% as of yesterday, it hasn’t entered the Silver Peak Wilderness, and all Evacs have been lifted. HOlding at 46,344 acres, 85% contained and only 35 structures threatened.

  1. good morning kate… so glad for the 75% and thank you once again…

  2. Yes, there for a while it was pretty hectic. Now, it’s like, “what am I going to do with all this time?” LOL. Maybe clean my house, as it has been neglected.


  3. Thank you for your coverage of the Chimney fire. All your reports, maps,photos and comments were helpful to many of your neighbor’s down south during these anxious days.. Now the next best news will be the Soberanes fire dies a peaceful natural,death!
