Thanks for all the good wishes - we're still watching smokefrom our second floor window, but the fire hasn't spread a huge amount, and we're upwind. Hopefully as they get other fires under control they will be able to send more resources to get this fire under control.

mtngal-

I think it is fair to say that we are still all concerned about the fire. Can you give us an update? We surely hope and pray that your house is not in danger.

The fire is still burning but we're still upwind of it. They've been concentrating on keeping it away from the homes in Frazier Park and then keeping it from getting out of hand. As long as it stays humid and the fireup on the remote, steep, inaccessible ridge they will probably let it burn (good way to control the brush, the area hasn't burned in a very long time). They don't have the assets to put it out at the moment. If the humidity drops (and I think it is supposed to) and/or gets windythen they may have to change how they're managing it. I've been relaxing more, since it isn't showing signs of traveling much.

The only thing that is sad for me is that I regularly hike up on that ridge further west, and they've closed the whole north end of the national forest. I would guess it will stay closed for the rest of the summer (sigh). At least the part of the forest south of main road through the area is still open, so I'll be able to hike in other spots. It could get very boring if they close the whole forest (they've done that before).
