I have been texting with Martin. They are okay, but they are evacuated. Dave's house is in the evac zone as well. Jeff Zepp and I have not received any calls to evac yet. Jeff is about 8 miles away from it and I am about 6 1/2 miles out.

This is less than a mile north and downhill from Dave. Has anyone talked to him? His road is on the evac list.

Thanks everyone for the offers of help. We evacuated and are heading home now. The fire was just over the ridge from our place and even closer to Dave's. Sounds like they have it squashed and forecast is for rain. Could have been ugly but the fire fighters were on it quick. :thumb:

Good news so far. I worked Sky2 this morning as they flew over the area. They said a little smoke, no flames. But, that was at 6am. Fingers crossed for rain and no wind/lightening.

Oh man, totally spaced out and forgot your folks were back! Should have thought to swing by. Glad they made it to your place.

Thanks for all of the offers guys! We're doing fine.:thumb: This google maps shot has locations of the latest hot spots. The Red X is my house and the Yellow X is my rental. Less than 2000 ft from the rental. Hoping for calm winds and rain today and to be in my own bed tonight!
