If you would like to hear the latest update on the Cameron Peak Fire – there will be a briefing at 730 tonight. It will be a Facebook Live presentation and you should be able to access it from this link.
The fire has grown to almost 90,000 acres and more evacuations have occurred. The ash fallout and smoke has been pretty difficult for all of us. While the snow will help slow things down and create a chance for the fire crews play more offense for a bit, it is not expected to put the fire out. This fire is incredibly challenging and according to people with boots on the ground the fire behavior is extreme.
