On July 22nd, the Soberanes Fire was started from an illegal 2 feet by 2 feet campfire. Since the 22nd, the fire has swept through 70,600 acres of land, destroyed 57 homes, and took the life of one person. The fire shows no sign of slowing down. As of today, the fire is still expanding, primarily into the wilderness on the south and southeast side of Montery County.
More than 5,100 brave and selfless firefighters are battling the Soberanes blaze, along with air tankers, helicopters, bulldozers and at least 300 fire engines.
