Backfires were started last night in the Big Sur valley and are continuing today. Presently I can see about a quarter mile from the Post House toward Ventana Inn. It cleared for a short time today and we could see flare ups in the Post Creek drainage alongside Ventana Inn.
We are still under ‘house arrest’ if you will. Residents cannot leave their properties. If found on the highway you will be escorted out of Big Sur.
