View up Piney Creek at the fire’s eastern corner. Spotting over the line was still creating headaches there last week, but all is quite now.
As week eleven begins, the official numbers for the Soberanes Fire stand at 132,069 acres and 92% containment. Full containment is expected by noon on October 15, but could certainly come sooner, as only scattered hot spots and occasional interior flare ups remain.
There could be more of these today and tomorrow, as another wind event is expected this afternoon and evening, but the containment lines are unlikely to be challenged.
Looks like the largest on record Madrone tree (Arbutus) has died in the fire.
