Martin Fire in Bonny Doon, Santa Cruz County

Unfortunately we have another fire here in Santa Cruz County. They are calling it "The Martin Fire".

It's in the Bonny Doon area near Boulder Creek.
It has been a few hours and it has already grown to 50 acres and 1400 people have been evacuated.

Officials expect it to grow to 1,000 acres quickly.

The Red Cross has set up an evacuation center at San Lorenzo Middle School in Felton.

I just went outside and took these pictures to share. This one is even closer than the Summit fire to us.

We've heard that Gary Meehan from Bonny Doon Farms is out with hoses trying to save his business.

For local news coverage you can check out KSBW.

I created a Google Map of the Martin Fire in Bonny Doon and I plan to update with pictures and information. Just click on the fire icon and you'll see images and updates from Scotts Valley.

1000 acres? This is also the effect of global warming .
