I'm having a hard time trying to figure out exactly where this fire is. From what I can tell, it looks like it's on the Santa Cruz side of the mountains and almost halfway between Los Gatos and Boulder Creek. Does anyone else have a better location for it?

Here's the state active fire website link for Bear Fire:

http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incid...ils/Index/1902

It includes info on evacuations, road closures, etc.

Dang, I can smell the smoke now. Just looked online and it's blowing into San Jose making the air quality bad here again:

A co-worker of mine who lives on the Santa Clara county side in the Santa Cruz mountains was forced to evacuate on Monday night but was able to get back into his house yesterday. Hopefully that's a good sign that they're beginning to get a handle on it. He'll be back to work today so I'll be able to ask him for some more details.

This one helped me the most. I can see why I was confused. The fire is on the far side of Skyline, but on this side of Hwy 9.

Dang, that's still close to home for me. I used to live off Skyline and I've been all through those mountains. But I have to admit, once I saw how small this fire was compared to the ones north of SF, I quit worrying a little.

We should all give a nice thank you to the US Gov't for choosing California residents to be the guinea pigs for their new directed energy toys.

THANKS GUYS!!

That's a weird San Diego University website. The Bear Fire is in northern CA.

I got some huge warning by clicking on that link with some big disclaimer wanting me to accept or deny to proceed. No thanks. Maybe something happened to the site since whenever you clicked on it?
