Mountain Fire Reaches 25% Containment
Clouds shrouded the San Jacinto mountains this morning, fostering hope that rain would help stem the Mountain Fire. By late afternoon the clouds had burned off, revealing much smaller plumes of smoke and no flames on the Palm Springs side of the range.
As the sun set earlier this evening, planes continued to fly over the fire dropping orange fire retardant. 3500 fire fighter battle the blaze. Today's favorable weather helped them reach 25% containment. Rain likely tomorrow.
Feeling safer. Back to work writing book 3 of Teen Wytche Saga.
