    3R News – Great community service if you would report on best credible estimate of WHEN this fire might reach Three Rivers. Someone on the fire line must have an informed estimate … Day Date and Time … Many Thanks!

      No one could say that or even hazard a guess.

    Sounds so scary! I remember evacuating the house of my host family at South Fork with my host brother in August of 1987 (Mt. Whitney fire) – I had just came in as a new foreign exchange student – host parents gone… animals had to be picked up by friends…it was scary then, too…ashes on all cars etc. Woodlake High School calling in why I wasn’t at school…
    Greetings and prayers from Germany…please stay safe.
