After witnessing the heavy smoke that filled the air on Gin Road Sunday, I couldn’t help but think of the wildfire atop Mount Diablo in the San Francisco area.

The San Francisco Chronicle says state fire officials should have the fire contained by the weekend. According to authorities, the reason for this is because the

confluence of cooler temperatures, humidity and gentle winds allowed crews to isolate the blaze in canyons near the mountain’s 3,848 foot summit.”

Although no homes have been burned, one outbuilding has been destroyed.

Capt. Robert Marshall of the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District said, “When Mother Nature cooperates; we can get the upper hand.”
