Winds are blowing hard up here. It's going fast

That's what I hear on the scanner. Fire described as massive. They're calling for a full evacuation of the entire area.

hopefully it is just rank 3 as Castanet reports. With these winds, that fire could just explode. :(

It's burning pretty fast. The winds up here are really going hard. Haven't seen air support yet. Our place is about a mile as the crow flies from the start location

Air support is on the way. Have been asked by KFD to hit it with everything they've got. Hopefully you're upwind of the fire...

Looks like it's going to be an interesting evening up here in Joe Rich...

Oh man - hoping for the very best to all those in the Joe Riche area, and to those residents already here on these forums.
