The fire has gotten much worse. Hopefully it will settle down later tonight. The flames and coals are spread over more than a mile east and west and come way down the mountain.The last three photos were taken at about 8:30 tonight, the first one from my driveway an hour earlier.

The fire is building up again this morning after some pretty good activity during the night. Here are a few photos of a water drop by a big helicopter this morning
