Devastating fire in Sierra Nevada





deanhills
Devastating fire seems to be sweeping through parts of the Sierra Nevada with hundreds of people having to evacuate from portions of the town of Bodfish and an area known as Myers Canyon.

Quote:
The fire got "very active" in the afternoon, but air tankers and helicopters "hit the fire hard," and kept the flames away from homes, U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman Cindy Thill said. The blaze had burned 6,139 acres, or more than nine square miles, and was 50 percent contained Wednesday night. Full containment was expected on Sunday.


Amazing photo of the sweeping fire. Looks like a rare painting:

^.^
Saying a fire is 50% contained is like saying you're holding water in 50% of a bucket.
(As any forest-fire fighter who doesn't have an angle will tell you.)
