Sorry if this has been posted, just letting people know there's a pretty big forest fire in the Table Rock area. This will probably affect climbing for a while. See the link for up to date closure info:

Apparently authorities want to speak to a party that was camping at the Table Rock sites on Veterans' Day.

Damn that sucks big time. 1800 Acres is a huge swath of land up there. Here's to everyone staying safe trying to containing this thing.

It's disgusting the number of campfires left smoldering I've rolled up to while camping and exploring. Whether in a steel grated campfire ring or rock ring, leaving a fire unattended is bad news.
If you don't have the means to thoroughly extinguish a fire then don't light one!
Hopefully this isn't the case but I wouldn't be surprised if it is.
