This state is just facing terrible fires North to South the past few months. Can't seem to catch a break.

Fire east of San Francisco doubles in size again as winds pick up


CLAYTON, California (Reuters) - A wildfire sweeping over a mountainside park east of San Francisco doubled in size for second straight day on Monday, and officials said they were concerned about increasing winds and the steep terrain hampering their ability to fight the flames.

The blaze, burning in dense, dry scrub, grass and timber in and around Mount Diablo State Park, had scorched some 3,700 acres by Monday afternoon, forcing the evacuation of about 100 homes at the edge of the town of Clayton.

We are just now entering the high season for fire -- September/October is the big season for grass/scrub fires because of the combination of heat & winds that arrive later in the Bay Area (marine fog layer keeps things moist in the summer).

I could see the Diablo plume today; it was massive/ugly.
