My thoughts exactly, heat of the day and well established, heavy continuous fuels…Looks like a decent road out in front…spotting to be sure…

NEU just punched out a second fire in the area (Applegate x I80). Don’t know yet if its the same, New or unrelated.

I hope I’m wrong, but listening to the chaos on the scanner and looking at the various cameras, this is looking like another 49er fire. Similar terrain, houses everywhere and rapid very rapid fire spread.
