For those of you in and around the areas that have been burned by the Boles and King Fire in California, I've had several friends comment to me about the fire. Thanks to the firefighters in the air and on the ground who have worked these fires.
According the latest update from the CAL FIRE Boles Fire incident page, the Boles fire has burned 479 acres and is at 90 percent containment with 150 structures being destroyed.There is a nice report from KTVU about some firefighters who tried to save a home in Weed destroyed by the Boles Fire.
As I write this, the King Fire has burned 76,376 acres and is at 10 percent containment. Recall that when I posted on Wednesday, September 17th, the size of the fire was at 18,544 acres. It grew by more than 40,000 acres over Wednesday night into early Thursday morning (September 18th). Bill Gabbert of Wildfire Today wrote about the growth of the King Fire in an article he wrote yesterday (September 18th). See also, coverage from CBS13 Sacramento early morning of September 18th (with video).
