This is Tuesday about 5:30 p.m. I just drove up the road to the fire camps to see how things were progressing. So far there has been no wind and that’s good. The fire is just burning along the ground, but it’s the biggest of the three fire complex. There is a West running finger that has crossed the back part of our neighbors and is now touching the back of our property. It will be okay if it just burns along the ground slowly. It will clean a lot of underbrush out and kill lots of ticks some bugs.
If that wind raises just a little bit them were going to have problems. We have 17 acres here and this fire is now right at the tip of our northernmost part of the property. It won’t take long to run through the rest of it if the wind picks up. The wind is so unpredictable around here, you never know what it’s going to do. We just have to sit tight and wait in see. It has cleaned up a lot of the brush beside the road about a mile upriver from here, looks pretty good.
