I wonder if the rigging/launch area will be bigger as a result of this...

Saw this on the webcam yesterday, and was surprised I didn't see anything on SF Chronicle. Last time there was that big of a plume was the Chevron refinery fire.

Which webcam?


I was checking out the ABC local cams to try and see if there was any wind/caps over by TP, and then saw the plume on one of the north-facing cams.

OK, thanks. I thought maybe I'd missed a new Sherman webcam.

Looks like there is history of such here:

Does anyone know what happened to the webcam at Rio Viento campground?

That's what I was thinking too. Bigger doesn't mean better in this case.
I think Sloughslut was right... it looks like it was on the Kitopia island. The fire dept. doesn't know how it was started though. First reports said it was a controlled burn, but that was not the fact.
