Jesusita Fire

We had scheduled to do trail maintenance on Jesusita this afternoon until this fire broke out. I helped friends who live on Los Canoas prepare to leave by squirting down the house and cutting brush that was very close to the roof. From their house below the Botanic Gardens I was able to snap the photo below. I believe the clump of trees to be Inspiration Point and the fire appeared to be behind it moving west to east. This evening from downtown the fire looked to be spread out in several different directions in the Tunnel/Jesusita area. We will post updates on the trail closures as we hear them from the Task Force. Dave
