This is how it starts…

I took this photo shortly after 930 this morning, looking back towards Reno.

This is now the Evans Fire (at or near Evans Canyon) Southwest of Reno, Nevada. A news report 2 hours ago had it at 20 acres and an hour ago at 35-80. I don’t know how official either of those reports are.

I am posting this with my phone while parked by the side of the road (Shawn) and will post better pictures taken with the digital camera later today when I get home.

UPDATE:  442pm Pacific Time – Corrected location to Evans Canyon, not Ranch.  Fire started approximately 8am local time.  As of an hour and 20 minutes ago, InciWeb website has it at 60 acres and only 5% contained.  I will be making a new post with additional photos shortly.
