they think they will have control tomorrow but also understand that several hundred more acres will burn because of the high winds.

It seems to be the same area that burned last year at this time.

That map appears to be last years. I believe this started on the west side of 206 and moved east over 206 into last years burn.

Aparantly the fire trucks are having a tough time getting back there. That area has some of the deepest sand around. I wonder how those firetrucks handle whoops!
