Fire season on the SC Day 1 route

The Chronicle reports tonight on a 15-acre grass fire near Fremont that has closed parts of our Day 1 route along Niles Canyon and Palomares roads:
About 300 firefighters from five agencies have been combatting the blaze, which broke out shortly before 4 p.m. in the region of Niles Canyon and Palomares roads. The fire was about 70 percent contained at 8:40 p.m., Agenbroad said.

... State Highway 84 was closed between the Mission and Sunol exits from about 4:30 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., said California Highway Patrol Officer Peter Van Eckhardt. Palomares Road between Highway 84 and Interstate 580 remains closed and will likely stay closed throughout the night, he said.

Saturday's training ride doesn't go through that area, so no worries there. But it's a good reminder that this is indeed fire season, and with all the wind that's in the forecast, anything can happen.
