The Chariot Fire (SW of Julian) is burning up Mt Laguna and mandatory evacuations are underway. CalFire says it is now 3,000 acres with 15% containment. It has recently jumped Sunrise Highway at the Mount Laguna Campground and is heading homes up there are threatened.
Large smoke plume visible from HPWREN cameras including Lyons and Mt. Laguna:
The fire does pose NO risk to Deerhorn area at this point, but it’s important to keep updated– firefighting resources may be stretched thin.
It’s also a good reminder to update your Emergency Box and mentally go through your family’s Fire and Evacuation Plan.
I know all of Deerhorn is thinking about those who are evacuating now.
