Loma Fire

I’ve been off line all day (and then my son wanted to talk for an hour, just as I found out about this fire), so haven’t been following this until now, but I understand it is around 600 acres and 20% contained, up near Madonna Summit. Even I take a day off from the computer.

Also, there are many, many road closures in the area, so please be sure to check the CHP link to the right, if you are traveling in the area tonight or tomorrow.

Homes are evacuated in the area. One prison inmate firefighter was injured and helicoptered to safety, after twisting his ankle in very steep terrain. Cal-Fire knew if the fire came his way, he would never be able to get out in time.

This one is very close to the footprint of the Summit Fire of last year. One firefighter has stated that it cannot get much bigger, possibly due to the lack of fuel. We shall hope he is correct.
