    Seeing dark smoke to the East of Crestline. Any info? No corresponding TFR at the moment.

    Info from: San Bernardino County Fire

    5:52 pm: SBCoFD on scene of a VEGETATION FIRE, Highway 18 X Old Waterman Canyon Rd. 5 – 10 acres moderate rate of spread, moving up hill.

    6:05 pm: The Highway 18 closure is from the bottom of Old Waterman Canyon Road up to Crestline. 10-15 acres, 0% containment.

    Seems to be called the “Cloud Fire“, a discussion here.

    There is hope for my students today (June 13)…

    No “all clear” yet or recent update from the Fire Dept or Cloud Fire tweets, but on the positive¬† side…

    No TFR. No significant smoke seen from the Crestline livecam. Google maps shows traffic flowing SB on Hwy 18 and possible NB by using “Old Waterman Cyn Rd” detour.

    All clear.

    Students enjoyed their morning flights.
