    I’m in Mesa cortina. There’s a shitload of aircraft fighting this thing. 30 acres and growing apparently. We are on pre-Evacuating. I’m grabbing some family members and vehicles.

    I'm working on the water line project that has Swan Mountain Road shut down today, so I cruised up the road. Fire is right up against some structures.
    I used to hike 2 hours for 10 minutes of turns on 207 gs skis, without needing “skins” or “hike mode.” Tell me again how I’m a gaper.

    Wind is blowing in the direction of the neighborhood. Sucks. I have a lot of friends/family up there. I'm out now.

    I believe I saw Blurred on his roof with a garden hose as I was leaving so at least we got that going for us.

    Yes lots of dead stands of trees... I'm guessing the fire hitting those is what caused pillars of flames. Steep slopes into the drainage too. Its windy, warm, and dry.

    But they did fuel mitigation up there in some areas near houses.

    Probably over 1000 people are evac'd or pre-evac'd

    Holler if we can help.

    I figured Blurred would just slam a 12 pack and piss on the fire when it got close.

    Per twitter, 1300+ evacuated, 1300+ on pre-evacuation.

    From some satellite shots it looks like there was a fair amount of fire mitigation done on that side of the main body of structures; hopefully they can hold the line there.

    I think they have more aircraft on this than they did on the Peak 2 fire. Hopefully the recent mitigation work keeps it from burning any houses. The wind isn’t helping though. Click image for larger version.

    As in the trailhead across Ryan gulch road from treehouse? Or the trailhead at the top of the road like you're going to ski silver? My folks have a treehouse condo, thankfully not around, but stressed.

    The TH up by the Buffalo Mtn Trail - top of the road.

    Sounds like the fire breaks they built in back there years ago have helped the situation immensely. Big props.

    A friend of mine is on month #212 of consecutive skiing. He skied Fourth of July bowl in Breck the other day and said it was one of his top 3 worst skiing experiences.
