Looks like there's a bunch of structures around Wright's Lake. Here's the latest combo map with the GOES data for that location. Winds don't look good, at all....

Fortunately, not too far to the east is 2-3 miles of granite with very few trees.

Wright's lake is beautiful but its super crowded. That whole area is.

Im super bummed that Lake Kirkwood campground appears to have been destroyed. That was a quiet little sanctuary.

Hopefully Silver Lake Campground was saved. They just reopened it this year, all new.

Caples campground was just completed this year too.

Hopefully Crystal Springs campground is still standing. The Tamarack fire came right up to it.

They have begun powering up in Christmas valley and nearby neighborhoods. Our blink camera came back up and, thankfully, the neighborhood looks okay (Oneidas & Pioneer Trail). SIS's house in Christmas Valley also looks okay, based on their cameras.

So, no more updates. Are we getting the upper hand on this?

Zoom Earth seems to show no further spread into Heavenly North or East this AM.

Lots of drops all night, all focused on the canyon run giving it nowhere to go. East of South Lake.

That fire NE of Portola has gotten revved up again and a lot of resources were reassigned to it. It a SE element (fork?) that branched out they hoped dozer lines would stop...they didn't.

I’m at McClellan today and air traffic much less than yesterday. The big birds were in high gear yesterday. Most have taken off a time or two today but not like yesterday!

There were two repopulation orders today.

One at 2pm

Another at 4:45pm

Hopefully Jason_2111's home was included in one of those orders.

Really glad that it has turned out well for many in Tahoe. My heart goes out to all the folks that lost their homes and everything they have worked for in this.

The fact that the fire literally jumped over Christmas Valley seems like a miracle. I know there were lots of fires among the homes as well but I understand they were very effective at protecting properties there!

You can look at the map showing the status of structures in the fire zone here.

I'm pretty sure it didn't "jump" anything. They just back burned what needed to be done in the knick of time.

Evidently, the embercast off of Echo vaulted over portions of the structures below and started spot fires some distance away which continued burning to the east/northeast. Later, when winds were more favorable for direct attack, crews started controlled burns in the unburned areas and did understory work to support structure protection.

This map view illustrates the fire behavior in that particular area.

https://sartopo.com/map.html#ll=38.8...2Cwxd_wgust-01
Fortunately, it appears the worst is over. SLT sure dodged a bullet. I believe the Dixie fire traveled more distance, over 60 miles but the Caldor fire is one for the history books, running so far near 44 miles. Question is will they let the loggers in there to work the standing dead? I hope so.

SLT definitely dodged a bullet. Amazing.

Question: for any “experienced” prior evacuees, what shall we expect for incoming mail deliveries after the populous are allowed back in?

As it stands today, the information I have is my mail is on hold in Carson. With proper ID I can retrieve it there. Opting out of that, will they deliver the accumulated mail to my home when my local post office reopens?

We were in the Thomas fire and none of the local post offices closed down, but mail delivery was on hold for about a month. We had to go to the post office to pick it up, and it was 1/2-1 he wait to get mail. Additionally, many things were lost during the month and we didn't realize it. YMMV, but if it drags on keep on eye on what bills are due. In our case late fees were waived once we explained what happened including DMV late fees.

Hope you get home soon.

Everyone, including residents are under mandatory evacuation.

Here is the El Dorado County Evac Map as of a few minutes ago. Nevada has their own Evacuation Map and have evacuated territory as well.

Red indicates mandatory evacuation zone, Yellow indicates voluntary evacuation zone.

Thanks brother.

I looked over the checkbook register yesterday and have an idea what should be arriving. Not much this time of the month.

As you mentioned, DMV and infrequent mailings like those are harder to track.

The entire lake, even the north shore, is smoky and very unpleasant, if not unhealthy. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to swim or bike in the area. Get a smoker’s lung in one single weekend!

My throat and lungs still hurt this afternoon in response to my very short time up in the outskirts of the western end of the fire yesterday morning as I tried to track down my mail.

The cabin my grandad built with his buddies up on Echo Summit in 1947 made it through the fire. 30+ cabins 200 yards down the road unfortunately did not.

Beyond thanks go out to the fire crews for doing their best to protect properties, with over 100 cabins being saved in the Echo Summit / Echo Lake area, plus hundreds of homes down in Christmas Valley below.

Thoughts to those whose homes and cabins did not make it, and those still in danger.

A spot fire developed last night within the South-West Corner of the fire zone on the South side of the Consumes river - not clear if it was within the old fire zone, or slightly outside it.

Today we have new fires in FiddleTown in Amador County (Lawrence Fire) - not far outside the Caldor Fire Zone and one at the Foresthill Bridge in Placer County (The Bridge Fire)

These people need to get ahold of Tom McClintock. Hopefully he will get the ball rolling on an investigation as to why the USFS sat back and did nothing on the Caldor Fire and other fires. I don't know how much CalFire had to do with laying back off of the fires. But I'll bet top officials have circled the wagons and crafted a nice fairy tale as to why they didn't jump on various fires.

Remember, they kept saying that there were no resources available, even though there were USFS and Cal Fire firefighters close by waiting for the word to jump on the fire. They also said the area was inaccessable, which is BS.

I think the boots on the ground are fine. I also think they have been told to shut up and keep facts and opinions to themselves.

During the daily briefings on the Caldor Fire, there was a woman forest administrator who who bleat nothing definitive. It was an empty, vague rah rah session. It made me want to puke.
