Redman:
A fire started yesterday around noon according to some reports, it's still burning. The smoke can be seen for miles around. Looks like they are letting it burn while trying to limit the affected area.

Redman:
Local ABC station saying there is Naptha, Zylene, and Toluene that they know of that are burning.

JakeG:
It’s still burning and likely will be for a couple of days. The wind is in my favor this week, otherwise I wouldn’t be in the area (30min away).

JakeG:
I’m surprised citizens were informed on the basics of “shelter in place”. See Facebook post from ReadyHarris.org

I just saw the 2 days thing. The fire is almost directly NNE of me but maybe 30/45 minutes by freeway. The east wind has been good.
