South Lake Tahoe - Up in Flames :(

This fire started yesterday and consumed about 60 homes.... and 250 acres.... now it's up to about 160 homes + 75 out buildings and 2500 acres.


This is the biggest and hottest fire I have ever seen, the flames of this thing seemed like they were more then 300 feet in the air.

It's about 90 minutes away from here...... I didn't take the pics, although I wish I had. That would be a photographers dream to get action shots like that.

The winds have died down today so the fire has calmed a bit so far... but all it will take is the wind to pick up and it has more then enough fuel to multiple several times the size.

I think it's only about 5% contained at this point. The planes weren't even flying this morning due to bad visibility. (smoke)

Wow, from the looks of that Chimney I am guessing that was a really cool / nice old home. I bet the smell is horrible. I hate the smell of a house fire.

Uggg. This brings back such bad memories for me.

My grandparents and aunt/uncle lost everything back in the So Cal fires of 2003. Still hard to talk about it.

Damn, looks bad. Lived in mountains for years, then canyons of So Cal most of my life, so these things are just a normal seasonal thing for me. Seen a lot of folks lose everything they own fairly "all of a sudden". Very sad to see when that happens. Hopefully most of these homes are just empty vacation houses, at least.

Losing a lifetime of photos and literally everything else you've ever owned is kinda suckish, to say the least.
