The big 737 air tanker was circling overhead. Apparently the Muckamuck fire is making a run for Conconully, which is a tiny touristy old mining town with a lake and state park. Conconully has been evacuated. Conconully is 16 miles away, but at a higher, more forested elevation.

The smoke cleared this afternoon and the fires are making runs for more ground.

Conconully survived the night. The local fire departments were there overnight and did a burnout One chicken coop was lost. Now I worry because I read where a California team will take it over. :eek:

Well, for about the fourth time in the history of the Dixie Fire I'm now thinking the eastern shore will be saved. Seems like the wind shift blew the fire back into the black a bit.

It'll be interesting to see if they'll get a handle on the Caldor Fire before the winds shift back and blow that sucker all the way around Tahoe.

Looks like the Caldor fire has a hard on for Tahoe. If the wind forecast for the next few days holds I don't think they'll stop it. They are trying nighttime helicopter flights, I think it's just one helicopter right now.
Pictures and video of fire activity today looked really aggressive, fast runs, crowning, spotting a mile ahead.

Our smoke is moving off and will mean a busy day for firefighters.
Dixie has bent CalFire over the barrel soo many times that they are well acquainted with the toes of their boots.
RandyMac - You were right - when you mentioned playing with saws I should have known. I wonder if there are more Kathryn Davidson Wildfire people here than just you and me? Maybe the BrushSlasher?
