El Diablo en el Fuego

Last edited Mon Sep 9, 2013, 03:08 AM - Edit history (1)

Hey, there's that big raging fire in Yosemite, but today one broke out in the East bay near Clayton on Mt. Diablo, didn't see anything about it here, but I took a couple pics of it:

1. So that's what all the smoke is about.

 

I could see it clearly from I-5 but had no clue how far west it was.

Thanks for posting.

2. I saw it either on the CBS affiliate in L.A. or on CBS Evening News

It was covered by their local affiliate up there:

6. Just saw it as I was exiting 80 west to 680 south

Looked like the whole ridge line was on fire. Lots of flames visible from 25 miles away.

Of course, it is pitch black out there...
