Since accurate information has been hard to come by, I thought I’d share some of the better sources I’ve found.
Cal Fire and KSBY were inaccurately reporting the fire starting at the corner of Chimney Rock and Running Deer Roads, hence the name. It actually started north of the Towne Creek crossing, which is about 3-5 miles north of Chimney Rock Rd. As of this writing, I understand that the fire is still north of Chimney Rock. Wishing the best for everyone in the community.
Here are the two best sources of information I’ve found.
