Berryessa / Wragg Fire – July 2015

Berryessa / Wragg Fire – July 2015

posted in: fire, nature | 2

About 2:30pm on 22 July 2015, a vehicle caught on fire, either as a result of an accident, or resulting in an accident. That fire started a massive wildfire in the area southeast of Lake Berryessa, which at last official update had burned over 4000 acres (around 9:30pm) and was only 5% contained.

Following are a few of the photographs I took this evening between 8:00pm and 9:15pm.

Who would have thought when I came home from taking photos about a mile away, this would be the view right down our street?
