http://www.inciweb.org/incident/2568/

it’s looks to be a mess for awhile..

The Hill Fire in Cajon Pass has resulted in a closure of all southbound lanes of I-15 at Hwy 395. All but one lane of northbound I-15 is open with CHP escorts but may close periodically due smoke and burning operations. Motorists are advised to avoid Cajon Pass as traffic will be heavy throughout the night. Structures are threatened in the Oak Hills Area. Mandatory evacuations are in place south of Joshua, east of Baldy Mesa Ave., and west of I-15.

You are right. The Cajon Pass cuts thru the mountains, but once I'm at my relative's house in Hisperia, I can look due south just a few miles to the northern side of those mountains.

58 between Mojave and Barstow is an entertaining drive, lot of two lane and some, ...shall we say “interesting” desert “homes” along the way.

They may dump enough on this thing to corral it if the winds die off later but that fuel looks awful dry.. could burn awhile.. this is at about 4,000 foot elevation, fwiw

Lucky You, I’m baching it here with the poodles.. Hopefully, this thing doesn’t get nastier this week-end..

In my unprofessional opinion...either they’ve got a handle on this or the wind has changed directions.

I’ll be real surprised, though, if I see stars tonight as usual.

Missed all the fun. Was in LA Thursday and didn’t feel the quake and Thursday night went back to Vegas via 58. Never did like that long climb up the pass. So I missed all the fun Friday by leaving early

For the record I-15 was packed around midnight and I was doing between 70 and 80 and was still being passed like I was standing still. Not cool when it’s a 18 wheeler
