Up here on Running Springs Rd. the visibility is about ľ mile at best. Bombers dropped retardant on the easternmost of the Montgomery woods/Orr springs fire about 6pm when it got close to our houses. About the same time cats were protecting the north eastern part of the road from the Durfee fire that threatened a house on Sat then doubled back on Sun. The biggest fire of the group is in the next valley east of Montgomery Woods. This one has been pumping a lot of the smoke you folks are chewing down in the valley. They canít get to it so they are just watching it at this time. Meanwhile Orr Springs has been evacuated and another fire is climbing east out of the Big River canyon towards Greenfield Ranch.

All the crews have been most helpful and pleasant. They have checked on us every day and let us stay even though the aerial drops were less than a mile away yesterday. Normally we love how quiet it is here, but it was very reassuring last night hearing clankety-clank the cats working all night long cutting more fire breaks.
