Just to let you know. As of a few hours ago the fire was still only 30 percent contained. Nearly 35,000 acres have burned.
But here's the kicker folks, they've got a new estimate on the number of homes that have been destroyed.
1386. That's right one thousand three hundred and eighty six homes.
The total number of home in the state that have been destroyed since the start of this horrible season of fire is: 1626.
