According to the fire headquarters, the fire has grown from 55 hectares to 95 hectares (approx. 250 square acres) over night. Fortunately for our camp, the wind is in our favor and as of right now there is no immediate danger to us. But with no substantial rain in the forecast, it will a tough job for the fire crews to get the fire out. We will try to keep everyone updated.
