Well it finally started. The San Bernardino Forest is on fire. After my last couple trips I expected it to happen eventually. Every other tree was dead. Lets just hope it doesnt get to bad and everybody makes it out ok.

1500 acres
2% contained

Man, where I first heard this, it was 200 acres and Running spring was in its path.

This is not good

Well, the humidity levels are up; that's good! Pray that the winds don't kick up! It sounds like the firefighters are serious about stopping it before it over-runs Running Springs. I hope they're successful.

Yep, even though it's only about 20% contained right now, it looks as if they're holding the line!

I left for the river on Friday and could see it burning from the 10 & 91, I thought it would still be burning when we got back on Sunday with the amount of dead wood up there. I hate to say it, but it is a matter of time before that place explodes :( unless we have a wet winter, and the FS allows loging to remove dead-wood.
