Chimney Fire, 8/31/16

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.
