After being evacuated for seven days, I'll be heading home tomorrow. The fire is only 19% contained at this point, but it has moved far enough from the town that there is very little chance of it coming back. The light rain we have have had the last two days has certainly helped the 2000+ people working on putting out the fire. However, because the fire is still burning actively, the air is still thick with smoke. Many people have reported it unbearable. We'll be heading back tomorrow to see how it is, but there is a chance we'll have to stay out of town for one more night.
