The volcano in Orleans Mountain has erupted again!!! Not really, the lightning on last Monday afternoon hit a few places around Orleans and this one was left to burn until Friday, July 29 when it had grown into a serious threat. By Saturday afternoon it was twice the size. Coates Vineyards are a mile in back from where this photo was taken and not in danger at the moment. Friends live directly below the fire and are getting ready for evacuation. All we can do is hope that the fire can be stopped before it gets any closer.
