104,309 acres/5% containment as of 7pm
AQI was 640ppm @ 10:30am (reading from our airstrip, 1/16 mile from us)
surpassed burn acreage of King Fire/2014 which finalized @ 97,717 acres

Still holding, sleeping in shifts

Max: 50 is closed, but as long as 80 stays open we can get to the house in Rachel (NV). If 80 closes, it's either the southern route to Rachel, or you. Wink Good to have options, there are no hotel vacancies.

You're right again Thumbs Up Today, at least, it looks as though the S. Lake area may be spared.

Looks like there may be a wave of tropical moisture heading your way next week.

Things took a turn for the worse the past 24hrs. Fire exploded in several directions

168,387 Acres/13% containment
SUMMARY: Today saw a significant increase in dynamic fire behavior resulting in rapid fire spread. Critical fuel conditions and the alignment of up-slope canyon winds increased extreme fire behavior in the early morning. The afternoon wind speeds produced spotting distances from ¾ to one mile. Active crown fires and group torching was present in multiple areas of the fire, presenting challenging conditions for crews. Additional evacuation warnings and orders were issued in multiple counties late this afternoon.

We're on Red Flag warning at least next 24hrs, winds due west toward us

Fire line



Evacuation area
Red is mandatory, yellow is warning. We're a few hundred acres from mandatory



Smoke is bad, having to change HVAC filter daily, 2 HEPA units & humidifier running 24/7 w/house sealed up as best as possible

Yikes!

Sorry to hear it.

Y'all could use some of this precip from Ida up that way.

This continuous light to medium rain would douse that fucker REAL quick.

OMG!!!

Prayers for you guys.

Please don’t wait too late to get out of there.

Those HVAC filters are expensive. But you must have clean air. I don’t think I could survive that air myself. Ragweed takes me down.

We're good atm except for smoke, still at the mercy of the winds

177,260 acres/14% contained

Not 100% on the details... burned through Sierra-at-Tahoe, either burned or on the way to Heavenly. SLT (South Lake Tahoe) evac-ed/major cluster-fk. Burning down through the east side of Echo Summit now. Kirkwood evac-ed. Hard to access, very difficult conditions. 20k+ acre fire run on east end yesterday.
Fire is "hung up" on the ridge of the basin that drops down into SLT. Burning @ Lower Echo Lake, Aloha Lake in Desolation Wilderness. Pushing toward Kirkwood.

Per OES: Heavy timber/deep canyon gorge firefight, very difficult terrain & conditions 50 corridor to SLT. Starting to get some control on the west side (us). Progress dependent on winds that naturally shift direction throughout days/nights and especially the Red Flag wind event, next 48hrs
