The fire has swept up the bluff from the Hatchery area and there are rumors that some houses have burned. The Hatch it self is OK and is being used as a staging area for fire crews. Several sailors are out in the 20 to 28 knot winds dodging the helicopters loading up water to fight the fire. Our sensor just went down probably due to overloaded telephone lines or fire.

Here is a photo from my house. Notice the helicopter with water bucket.

I am bummed for those folks that lost homes on the bluff. Such a gorgeous spot.

Thanks for the photos and video Dave!
