These photos are from Shawn and Kristin K.

The first three were taken in the Merced River Canyon yesterday before the Highway 140 road closure, about 4 miles East of the Briceburg Bridge. This is why the road was shut down as CalFire was afraid that the fire would jump the river to the South side.

The fourth photo is of a Blackhwak Helicopter dousing the fire by the Mount Bullion towers.

Thanks for the photos!

These photos are from Les Overstreet and were taken yesterday.

They include snorkel helicopters, dozer work and a fellow standing on a peak above Bagby.
(On a clear day that fellow by looking East could look from there into Yosemite Valley, 30+ miles away!)

Thanks Les :-)

A short video of my guests from Yuma, AZ Station 2 strike team. What a great group of people.

They stayed on our ridge (Blue Oak Ridge Rd) to watch for and take care of hotspots.
