Fire Near Our House - mariposa yosemite telegraph fire

**Final Update, Friday August 1st 8:00 a.m. - The fire is now 98% contained. Thanks firefighters!

There has been a wild fire raging near our home in Midpines, California. As of Sunday a.m. over 18,000 acres have been burned. Hundreds of homes were evacuated. At 2:30 a.m. on Sunday morning we got a call from the fire department letting us know we should prepare to evacuate. So we gathered the animals and packed the car. We didn't get the follow up call to actually evacuate so we paced all night and finally got some sleep around 8 a.m.

Here is some coverage:
