Dust and smoke issues in the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District

Rough Fire grows

Posted by admin on August 4, 2015

The Rough Fire, 35 miles due  west of Independence at coordinates 36.87105, -118.90286, was mapped at only 65 acres yesterday but has apparently grown significantly today, as witnessed from this webcam image.  Smoke in the Owens Valley seemed more today than what should be coming from just the Cabin Fire and Willow Fire.  This new fire could very well be the cause.  Cloud cover is preventing confirmation from satellite imagery.  Details will be provided, when available, at our homepage,, or possibly at the California Smoke Information page,
