Dixie Fire Night Panorama Northeast of Paradise

[July 19, 2021] The fire has moved far east of us tonight – no smoky air – calm, with a southern breeze here. Coyotes were howling in the canyon last night.

Tankers are flying overhead now, refueling at Firebase Chico, and then back into it. Downtown Paradise can be seen lower right of the fire column in this photo.

The Dixie Fire is at 40K acres, mostly in the Sierra-Cascades high country, a mile up in steep terrain – very difficult to set fire lines, though about 2K firefighters are on the line now. We saw a fire truck from LA in Chico yesterday. All hands on deck for this one.
