    Thanks, you answered my question, I was just out trying to discover the source of the smoke and it looked like Eagle Lake area to me, with another fire somewhere else, like maybe the Carr Fire. It sure is slowly taking over whats left of our Blue Sky.

    Thanks so much for the info, I live in Meadow Valley and started driving around searching for a plume of smoke somewhere as it looked like there was possibly a fire up by Bucks Summit! Glad to know it is NOT in our neck of the woods!

    Sierra Valley too has so much smoke cannot see the mountains from the Nervino airport!
    Thanks for the update.

    This looks like a new fire, not just smoke blowing from the south.

    When my friends and I first noticed the smoke, it appeared to be a new
    fire from somewhere west and south of Janesville. Glad to be mistaken
