A number of fires are burning across California today. Fortunately, most in Northern California are well on their way to containment. However, the exceptions to this are–from that of most concern to that of least–the County Fire, the Pawnee Fire, the Petersburg Fire and the Flat Fire.

The Pawnee Fire: Began June 23 and at one point forced the closure of Hwy 20. The road reopened yesterday but evacuations are still in force. UPDATE 12:40 p.m.: All those evacuated allowed to return home.] Firefighters seemed to have the fire nearly closed down but on Saturday the fire burst out of its corral and ran. Today, the fire has reached 14,900 acres and is 80% contained.
