This and people who do this. Still no idea if this was human caused or just how it started. My bet is human.
The cedar creek fire was discovered yesterday around 1:00. My mom and I saw it and decided to drive out and see where it was exactly. From the north it didn’t look too bad.

So now we are on a Pre-Evacuation order just waiting for the news. Honestly though, after listening to the press conference, it seems to me that they feel a little cautiously optimistic about this thing.
In 2002 we had a monster fire that had us evacuated for 2 weeks, some people longer. This fire is moving into that old burn area and an area that has been cleared or treated, which is thankfully slowing it down.
As of now there are no evacuations ordered.
