Fire on Highway 74
There was a small (2 acre) fire up on Highway 74 a couple of days ago. It must have been far off the road because I didn't see any sign of it going up the mountain or coming down yesterday. Thank goodness it was quickly put out! Phew!~I did notice yesterday that someone has closed off my favorite dirt road (see pics). I don't know if the forest service did this or who did it. Frankly, I'm glad because that road is very narrow with a lot of vegetation.
