KGO AM just reported that the Dolan Fire (Monterey County, California, 95,000+ acres) was arson.

It's 20% contained, at this point.

Arson.

EDITED to add a link to a KPIX report:

A suspect, identified as 30-year-old Fresno resident Ivan Gomez, has been arrested on arson charges in connection to the fire. Gomez was first detained on August 18 near the origin of the fire in the John Little State Natural Reserve.

Fire burned through Talent, Oregon.

Wind from the south really pushed it.

Forecast of 111* for our area this Sunday.

KGO is saying possibility of 113-15*.

Stay safe out there my fellow Californians.

What should we do, if anything, about Putin and his oligarch buddies?

If we can vote Joe Biden into office in November, we can set about repairing the damage done to our nation.

But a real question will remain, and it's one that has been in the back of my mind since this whole nightmare started:

What should we do, if anything, about Putin and his oligarch buddies?

Something for our time, from J.R.R. Tolkien.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” J.R.R. Tolkien The Fellowship of the Ring

I'm pretty sure someone has shared this already, but it really speaks to me.

Fire wipes out Big Basin State Park's historic buildings.

This link goes to the story in SFGate. On my cell, so I hope it works.

Edit: not sure of the status of the redwood groves. Edited thread title to be more specific.

Evacuating some neighborhoods in Vacaville.

KGO just listed the acreages burning in Napa County. I was trying to tally the several fires of the complex as they called them out, and it's like +/- 40,000 acres with ZERO containment. Wind is also picking up around here today.

Sorry, I don't have any links. I'm just reporting what KGO is currently discussing. If I have misheard something, or the info is inaccurate, please correct me.
