Folks in Big Sur have been asked told to evacuate due to the uncontrollable wildfire still roaring through the Basin Complex. The mandatory evacuation will go into effect at 5 p.m. today. In addition to staying safe from the blaze, firefighters need residents out in order to perform "burning operations" in the area. Citizens in the Palo Colorado Canyon in Monterey have have been told to scram as well. But on the brighter side, the air quality in SF is much, much better. Not a hint of smoke in the air. Ahhh.
