Brush fire in Weed, CA. today.

Today on my way to Macdoel and Tulelake a 50 acre brush/forest fire started just south of the city of Weed, CA. Apparently no structures were threatened but it was moving close to the Roseburg Lumber Company's pile of logs. Tanker planes and helicopters were fighting the fire and I thought for a moment that highway 97 (the road I use going towards Oregon) would be closed. Mount Shasta is in the background.



The second picture shows the smoke and the view is entering Weed from the North on highway 97 on my way home late Monday afternoon.
