Have heard quite a few neighbors’ fire alarms going off in the evening the last two weekends. Their house managers have even come to turn them off. I have been warned about the smoke setting off the alarms. But there is no smoke smell up here so I have to assume it is the moths. It finally happened to us last night and one moth did drop out of one as husband was disconnecting it. We have certainly never had this happen before. Ended up having to totally disconnect a couple because it happened again and again. Replacing battery didn’t help. Soooo.... happening to anyone here?

Yep, just crazy. You've not had an alarm set off? I'm now aware that it's not just smoke alarms, it's security alarms, also, that are set off. But the security alarm can be set differently, so that a moving moth or 10 won't set if off.... But mine is a smoke alarm. Two of them had a moth IN it. : (

We have them too in Moonridge! Haven't seen them before. There were a bunch under the cover of my grill, but in the house too. We don't live here full time, actually hadn't been up since February.

we have a place in Moonridge. owned it for 27 years and have never had a moth problem.
just came up for a few days and found probably 50 - all hanging onto our drapes in upper area of cabin
i think i was able to kill them all
i know we did not bring them in and i cannot find any entry opening.
does anyone know best way to eliminate? or do they just go away on their own ??

Amazing you have not experienced them before, we had them in large numbers a couple of different spring times/June, but 10 years ago. I hear some people are leaving a bowl of soapy water and catching a lot that way. Some people are setting off Something when they’re leaving that will kill them after they’re gone. Yeah, they eventually die off and stop somehow getting into our houses. Hope that happens soon!

@MinuteMan - let us know what you are seeing from your vantage point sir. Thank you! Smoke looks a bit better from the various cams but that could be deceiving....

It's got the entire Arctic Circle and Keller's Peak in between the fire and Big Bear, though. That lowers the danger considerably. Smoke could be bad.

My USAFR unit out of March AFB had skid mounted retardant set ups for our C-130's until they changed our mission to C141's.

They will be dipping helicopters out of various places and then using SBD Tanker Base for the Tankers. The Edge of the Fire is looking like its 9 or 10 miles South West of the Big Bear Dam (estimated)

Where do they get their water from for this fire? Since I don't do 330 how far is it from Big Bear ?

Little to none Quakes --- The fire is moving North North East and Arrowhead is quite a ways North North West. It would have to do some crazy things to get up there.
