The wildfire called the August Complex is nearing the small communities of Post Mountain and Trinity Pines, about 200 miles (322 kilometers) northwest of Sacramento, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Law enforcement officers went door to door warning of the encroaching fire danger but could not force residents to evacuate, Trinity County Sheriffs Department Deputy Nate Trujillo said.
As many as 1,000 people remained in Post Mountain and Trinity Pines, authorities and local residents estimated Thursday.
The threatened marijuana growing area is in the Emerald Triangle, a three-county corner of Northern California that by some estimates is the nations largest cannabis-producing region.
People familiar with Trinity Pines said the community has up to 40 legal farms, with more than 10 times that number in hidden, illegal growing areas.
Growers are wary of leaving the plants vulnerable to flames or thieves. Each farm has crops worth half a million dollars or more and many are within days or weeks of harvest.

NNNOOOOOO!!!! Call in the National Guard. We must save the endangered cannabis plants at all costs. Think of the generations after us.
Honestly, I don’t give a rip about the dope.
What upsets me is the untold millions of critters killed by the lefty arsonists.
Even if they had somewhere safe to run to, some animals just can run [crawl or slither] fast enough.
We ride at dawn!!!
I’m with ya’. I’m not a stoner but have friends. Like you I feel bad for the animals when arsonists destroy countless of them for some dark satanic reason.
Dave’s not here, Man.
Too bad. So sad.
In other news, prison fire fighting crews have received volunteers in unprecedented numbers...
Endless photos of birds trying to shield their nests from the fires.
So many charred bodies, it breaks your heart.
I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

On a dark, flat land she rides
On a pony she named Wildfire...
Among the funniest things I ever heard as a kid was this single played at 33 and 78rpms.
Horses aren’t that funny. Ponies are hilarious!
Snap out of it!!
I’m just tired.
The Spotted Owls are all stoned.
The left global warming THEORY(not fact) goons have been engaging in ARSON to further their AGENDA. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure figure out that Antifa/BLM are responsible. Media sits on fire origins, police and sheriffs told to keep their mouths shut.
The Soros puppet left has been engaging in an OVERT WAR against the President and Americans using ILLEGAL means for a year now. They are no longer even trying to hide it.
COVID is now a SCAM. Pending tests are counted as positive!
In the records of a patient there were 3 pending tests from one hospital visit! The patient does not have covid, and they could not explain the three pending tests!
The left has been corralling us for 9 months now while Antifa/BLM is are allowed to do whatever they want!
Its past time for this to be stopped by whatever means necessary!
Been there my friend....get some sleep and ENJOY the very conservative 40 Year Supreme Court nomination tomorrow....:)
I pictured Bluto in
Twist up a “Blunt”
It’s horrible I agree.
