We have reports that the smoke can be seen from San Jose. Many were confused as to if the Soberanes fire had flared up. Unfortunately, you can see from the picture above, it is clear the fire is in the Santa Cruz mountains.
Meanwhile, the Soberanes Fire south of Carmel has reached 127,000 acres with a 78% containment. Progress is being made but local, state, and national authorities are still expereiencing containment issues due to the terrain where the fire is currently burning.
