Having worked in wildfire affected areas for the last decade or so, might I respectfully suggest that you carefully plan to go to places where you will not run into fire affected people.

"Gawkers" are not made welcome in the main. I've seen some very aggressive and upset locals making their point to fire tourists in the past.

Wineries might be a good start if they are open, rather than close in to town.

There was a guy up here on his "regular" bike ride on Sunday - he'd ridden from Richmond, and had been a bit put out that the roads were closed the week before. Funny, I was talking to him because he'd stopped on the side of the road to answer his phone, and parked with his high pressure tyre on a still-red-hot bit of wood...POP! Talk about ooblivious...
