While it’s looking pretty good for PG, in that the fire is running more south and east and generally away from him (other than one isolated bit that ought to be put out soon), this map looks like a big ongoing disaster.
The fire has gotten away from them up slope and toward the hills behind Oroville, and it looks like the bit near Big Bend has jumped the narrow part of Lake Oroville. This puts it in position to NOT die out, but run further behind the lake where it is much harder to reach. Most of the historical roads into that area ran along what is now lake bottom. I have no idea if any decent replacements exist.
When the winds had died down and it had become a fairly thin ring, I figured a good aggressive effort could knock it down; and kind of went on to other things.
Now we’re under a new Red Flag warning and this thing is as big as ever, but more of a line fire over a long reach in rugged and remote terrain.
It may have left the news as the Talking Heads move on to Malibu and the Glitterati, but for the folks back in those remote areas this is an ongoing disaster.
