      the fires are mostly on the west side. They are probably okay if stay on east side by mammoth, although air quality really bad. good luck. If they are hiking out of Reds, call the store..

    No one was attending castle fire when it was much smaller. Inciweb days reported 8/24. NOT. It was reported on 19th. I called in when it grew to 2000 acres and was told it was still unmanned. Why?. Because the wealthiest communities get the fire crews first. Thats the way this BS goes. No teams set up for this till waaay after it was out of control. And how many breathing problems come from this? Wildlife and wildlives lost? Taxpayers paying over $12M to date. Bad coordinating, low ethics.

      Russ, thanks for the update.

      Because of the sheer number of fires around the state, including both Inyo and Mono counties, we have tried to provide links to CAL Fire and USFS InciWeb. Links are generally contained in the press releases. Rather than report on every single fire, Sierra Wave’s focus for our listeners and readers is on those fires that pose the most significant threat to air quality, life, and property/structure fires within our coverage area. Thanks again, Russ, for the update.
