I am actually at Atsion lake and it deafly crossed the Quaker bridge dirt road and now it's moving north parallel to 206. traffic is being diverted from Atsion and 206 and Stokes to Stokes and 206 did not affect the church ranger station or mansion

You know... they even have signs on 55, 42 and 295 warning people about dry conditions. If they did not tell everyone this I bet we could get through a fire season without these idiots starting fires.

I was on the south west side of Atsion Lake at one of my favorite rest spots when I spotted a bit of smoke. It must have just started.

by that photo looks like quaker bridge road would pass right through it.they should've waited for the fire ,it would have taken those beetles out instead of the carnage the state reeked.Still haven't figured out how dropping trees in piles with the bark still on em gets rid of beetles.
