Everyone I know whose home was on the fire line is safe. The six homes lost were in River Kern.
The fire began moving back into the wilderness.
This shot was taken on Day Two from the top of Cook Peak above our home.
The fire is 100 percent contained.
Final count that I saw in this week’s paper was eight houses burned, but no fatalities.
Thank you firefighters!
