The Yosemite Rim Fire, Day 17 (Semper Vigilo)

I have been off-the-grid and off the mountain for many days. Checking status. The fire is listed as 75% contained, with a projected 100% containment date of September 20. It ain’t over till it’s over, but it’s great to see a potential end date.

Thanks to all who have pitched in and given of themselves to manage this fire.

It’s important to note that “containment” does not imply “control”, and whether the fire is considered contained or not, it continues to burn until the last ember goes cold, or at least until it drops to a temperature that can no longer ignite anything nearby.

Semper Vigilo.
