We have had lots of lightening in the past few weeks. A strike can smolder for quite a while waiting for conditions to be just right. Then all heck breaks loose. This fire made a big run Monday afternoon.
I was up in the area posting "Caution Warnings/ Maps" at every trailhead today. I returned to the station and was told to be at the ready Thursday incase there is a closure.
