This area approaching Echo Summit was where we got away from the valley heat when I was a kid. I know the area pretty well.

This was published an hour ago. It looks like there are so many new spot fires from falling embers in high wind, that the whole region - miles of it - will end up burned. The fire is on both sides of US-50 near the summit and everyone is concerned it will drop down into the Tahoe Basin.

This is steep rough country, mostly inaccessible to get to what's burning.





How the heck do you fight this? Miles of it.
