Tough day for fighting Wild Forest Fires today.... Temps over 100 with 30mph sustained SW winds blew the wildfire from the forest to the chaparral onto BLM land. While the fire did spread and did find it's first structure, not a house but a garage type building on a ranch. The containment lines around the neighborhoods in Kyle Canyon have held so far and there is hope that as the weather changes they can start to form some containment in the next few days. At dusk today the smoke plume didn't appear as black as it has the past few days. Time will only tell and hopefully some rain will develop in the next two days to help the fire crews out.
Day 190 of 365
