“Oh my god! That’s so BIG!”
It’s not a double rainbow that’s got Paul “Yosemite Bear” Vasquez (“Double Rainbow guy”) excited this time, it’s a forest fire close to his home which is located near Yosemite National Park. He says he’s in no danger by the fire but he certainly is wowed by it.
This fire started yesterday Fathers Day June 16, 2013 around noon. I noticed it immediately and started filming. This footage was shot today Monday June 17, 2013 3 PM. I was on the phone with a CNN reporter when the flames started shooting up and this video starts. I was ordered to evacuate last night but refused the order because I have been planning for this for decades. My 2,500 gallon water tank went online two days before this fire. My well puts out a good water hose stream and my water tank puts out 2 streams and my hot tub another. I have 4 potential water hose lines, if only I had somebody here to help me man them. All the people who live here ran away like chickens. Ha. I fear nothing, I see it all as exciting, interesting and amazing!
