PER ONE BSVFB MEMBER, THE FIRE WAS CAUSED BY TARGET SHOOTING AT A METAL TARGET. STUPID SEASON HAS DEFINITELY OPENED!
5:00 pm – lots of traffic going out. Looks like it is all wrapped up.
THANK YOU FIRE FIGHTERS – LPNF, CAL-FIRE, AND OUR WONDERFUL LOCAL VOLUNTEERS! I am going straight to the BSVFB page and make another donation! Have you donated, lately? If not, the start of the fire season is a great time to do so, and BSVFB makes it easy, just click on their link under Big Sur links – paypal and credit cards accepted. Is this a plug? You bet it is! Even if you are from out of the area, and can only give $5, it all adds up, so please consider donating today.
12:30 pm – during the last hour a lot of USFS and Cal-Fire and apparently private pick-up trucks have come through here going down to the fire – at least 8. All the beds were jam-packed with all kinds of gear. I have been informed that this is probably rehab.
Here is a scribble map of the fire’s location.
At 11 am, Kinnick reports that the water tanker is still pumping water out of the well, and taking it down to the crews below.
USFS came through here about 8 am. Said there is still a bit of smoke and that they will have crews on it all day today, but it is definitely controlled. LPF E 18, just went home at 8:30 am, LPF E 19 just went home at 9 am. The two Gabilan Fire Crews just went home at 9:30 am.
