Watching the #FireMappers timelapse, it appears the #GoldenFire started just before dawn. It was reported just after dawn.

Reports of fire at Waldorf School in Yuba CO is a false alarm. Has nothing to do with #GoldenFire well to the north. *NO* issues at Waldorf.

The #CaldorFire burned 221,000 acres, forced the evac of 50,000 residents, destroyed more than 1,000 structures (mostly homes) & forever changed the lives of thousands. @POTUS pls honor your promise to help them rebuild their lives. ow.ly/PcQ150JbypW

Paywalls are annoying. I get it. Use code FIRSTMONTHFREE to access the entire blog for free. If you like my #CaldorFire work, keep it. It's just 3 bucks a month. If not, just cancel it within 30 days and you won't be charged. Hope this helps. Cheers. bit.ly/3wcn4AQ

Good reporting. Will be watching this closely. In recent years we have seen projects like this receive sufficient funding, but left unfinished due to insufficient resources/manpower (ie Trestle). Eager to see how these projects aim to be successful.
These two forests will collectively receive $28.6 million in 2022 and an additional $52.1 million over the next three years through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. tahoedailytribune.com/news/a…

Several research, writing, and editing positions open at @CenterforJustJ1. Their org profiles on job search platforms look compelling. However, I can't find a website or social media presence to learn more. Anyone have info on The Center for Just Journalism? Track record?
