NorCalRuss Posted August 6, 2018 Report Share Posted August 6, 2018 Took the family and friends camping to Brightman flat this weekend and had emergency evacuation. Brightman flat is about 30 mins past Pinecrest and 10 mins prior to Kennedy Meadows for those that are familiar with the area. Was a scary situation for most in the group. We had 6 families with us and many mixed aged kids. Few trucksdriven by 18 year old kids with no mountain driving experience. We had to evacuate east over Sonora Pass which dead ends @ 395. Basically had to drive NE to Nevada and then back W to 99 Freeway and then south to Central Valley. 7 hr drive to get home and 2 hr to get there originally. Fire is called Donelle Fire and is currently at 0% containment. It was estimated 1 mile from us at time of EVAC. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
