Go watch a video bigsurkiyote (lance lindborg) posted. It is crazy! That’s on instagram. Just search for his screen name.
It is now 1:15. I will probably make it until 2, but not much past that, I fear. Here is a photo by Scott Moffat who says:
Took these earlier tonight from the top of hot springs canyon. I

Springs canyon with the wind at my back. Silhouettes of tree skeletons
from the recent fires still stand as the current inferno rages towards
Midnight, and at 11:45 — from scanner (not confirmed): Fire burning downhill with rapid rate of spread. Spotting downhill 100 yards out ahead of itself. Esalen Institute threatened!!! Structure protection needed asap. Fire behavior described as extreme.
Here is a photo from just minutes before they closed the road near/at this location.
11 pm — Highway One is closed, Nacimiento is closed. (??? From scanner traffic)
Per the scanner 10:20PM: Sheriff Rescue calling CHP for a hard closure of HWY1 for fire coming down the hill.
