Fire burning in CA, Big Bear/Holcomb off-road area

A little sad news for off-roaders and outdoor enthusiasts - There is a forest fire burning in Holcomb Valley near Big Bear, CA.

Firefighters Struggle With Stubborn Holcomb Fire Near Big Bear Lake « CBS Los Angeles

This area is a California Historical Landmark and a favorite destination for wheelers in Southern California and around the country.

The fire is relatively small at this point and Firefighters have made excellent progress trying to contain it, but a few awesome trails will still end up with some damage.

Sending prayers and gratitude to these badass firefighters hoping they can beat it.

Just came back from wheeling/camping out there this past weekend. Mostly wheeled on the northwest side in relation to BB Lake, away from the fire area (virtually no smoke when we got up there Saturday) and seems all cleared up (except for the jeep that is). Ranger I talked to said as far as they know all the trails affected (Gold Mountain, Jacoby canyon) should be reopened.

Here's a pic from Butler Peak (recently reopened) looking toward BB Lake and the hills we love to crawl.
