Mike B. reports there is a fire at Viento late this afternoon. It appears to be near the campground. This could impact people staying or launching in the area. No reports of 84 being closed at this time.

New report from Mike B.: "Ramps are closed until midnight." I am assuming this is the ramps into the Viento area.

I could see that the ground fire was right at the beach in front of the sensor. Traffic maps indicate that Viento off ramps are closed till midnight. Looked like the fire stared at the beach. Campground has been evacuated.

Just talked to a volunteer park helper at Rowena, she called the park rangers at Viento for an update.

Apparently, Viento was never evacuated and everything is under control now.
