CA-SQF-Castle???

Spotted the heat showing on the satellite at the fork of the Kern and little Kern rivers near castle rock. Has some boots on the ground and AA410 was also checking it out

Should show on this camera as the day goes on.

Another fire in the Kern drainage. Not surprised. Getting to this on the ground via Lloyds Meadows is not horrible. Just hot. Good water sources off the Little Kern and Freeman Creek.

Large pyrocumulus over the fire.

ICP is at the Porterville Fairgrounds. Other camps are still to be determined based on fire growth.

Nice shot. Did you get get some good Sierra Pinstriping driving in? I was on that road last month and a bit narrow in spots. Hope they can keep fire out of all that old growth Red Fir.
