    48 hour Wind Forecast Map shows winds blowing West to East - sounds like it is still being driven by terrain moving north to Mile High Vista (source: cross-post on Q&A)

    Had a SAR back in that area a few years ago. It's rather nasty and overgrown, and hasn't had a good fire through there in a while. This is right across the river from the Aspen Fire, and had the Aspen jumped the San Joaquin, this probably would have burned then.

    The airshow is done for now. It varied from 1-2 tankers all afternoon, p2 and s2. The cobra ship was over the fire today. AA-15 is unavailable due to mechanical issues.
