A fire closed the eastern entrance to Virginia City on Sunday. East Fork as a crew dedicated to the 96- acre Pedlar fire, which started 1:30 p.m., and prompted evauations in American Canyon near Silver City. Sierra Front spokeswoman Elayn Briggs said the threat from the fire has declined considerably. Chance of ignition is 86 percent today, so be careful with sparks out there.
I got word today that the Chorus on the Comstock won’t be performing for Pops in the Park, which makes sense since there are looking for a new director.
