Since it's been a couple of days since we posted last, and I'm up and drinking coffee (although not at our place) I thought I'd update you all.
I've been scooting up to our neighbors and keeping an eye on the fire daily while we've been in Manley, and since Monday it's changed significantly. It mostly got held at the firebreak cut by Jay Hodges on Sunday night on the south side of the Elliott, it did jump towards the Hutlinana, but that was being mopped up and bulldozed on Tuesday yesterday Darrell Scott did a flyover and only saw a half a dozen smoking patches in the Eureka area, but they were mostly inside the burn perimeter so were just burning out. The only concern was where the fire jumped the firebreak but we had smoke jumpers working that area.
All in all the fire teams did a great job (once they got on it) and had some help from the wind while doing the backburn.
Seems like we dodged a bullet this time around, we're planning on returning home tomorrow, and getting on with more mundane things. Of course there is always the possibility that it could all blow up again, but if the rain we got in Manley last night also hit our place, then the chances drop even further. We likely have more chance of getting another fire from a lightning strike.
