For the second time this season I am within sight of a major California fire.

The first time was Oct. 13th, documented with photos in my diary entry here:

I am about seven miles from one of the current fires, named the Sayre fire. It started Friday night, and was about 15 acres in size when they arrived. It is currently estimated at 9500 acres.  It is a brush fire on rugged mountain terrain, currently 30% contained according to the LAFD website which was updated just moments ago.


Late yesterday afternoon my route took me within a couple of miles of the fire, and it looked like it had died down. However, this morning, there was lots of smoke, which continues to build, as evidenced by the photos below.
