Nearest fire from me is maybe 50 miles away. There were so many started right after lighting storm few weeks ago. Highways were closed where I could only go out to North. Now since opened. Other fires they are from unknown started. I did see something said about a propane installation accident, but no sure as nothing said on CalFire. The strange thing I saw was when lightning was going on I never saw it coming down from the sky to ground. I'm on a side near top of mountain and the other side toward the Pacific Ocean is where it was striking. All I saw was Flashes by the horizon. The sound did not have any crackling sound, maybe since it was far away and I over the top over a ridge. Thought it was propane tanks or something exploding. It was just lightning but for seem like all night and early am hrs. Fire from strikes I hear can smolder for up to a week before flames and some one sees it and reports it. Stuff I did not know. Evacuation warning by phone I will set up with the reverse alert. My weather radio has a sleep mode where if an alert it turns on automatically, I should see about getting it set up. Crazy for sure.MT, hope you are not in harms way with the wild fires. Keep us posted.
