  • Where on 96 is this fire???

  • Yikes!!hope they get it all

  • I think it’s Knight’s Park…3353 Hiway 96, where the hiway starts heading into the bluffs
    I hope the fire stays small and doesn’t damage other structures. Lovely area, quiet.

    • That is correct on the address. I hope they keep it contained. There’s a lot of homes nearby including mine. So yeah, I have a lot of worry going on here. they just now called in more fire trucks from Blue Lake on the scanner.

    Prayers up for the Knight family and the tenants at the park. The temps were in the 100’s today. We hope the injured firefighter makes a swift recovery. Thank you to the emergency responders.
