Some fresh Red Flags hoisted for Monterey and San Benito counties including the Monterey Ranger District of the Los Padres.
Big Sur RAWS was 84 degrees with 6% RH this afternoon…drier than during the Pfeiffer Fire.…=mtr&version=0

PLEASE be careful, all our weekend guests. If you see any campfires outside the developed campgrounds of Plaskett, Kirk, Pfeiffer State Park, Riverside Campgrounds, Big Sur Campgrounds, or Fernwood. Please report it!

  1. From Bad to Worse ,,,Two things are on my mind , first does any one know how the Pfeiffer Fire got started ? and second , could CPOA purchase a Helmut Cam , to lend to helicopter pilots, who come to fight fires in residential areas like Pfeiffer , Partington, B S Valley and P V ? I did ask a chopper pilot why not , his reply, was the pilot focus was beyond his ability to record during flight ??? So how can skydivers video their free falling ?


  2. The consensus seems to be it was started by an illegal campfire, under or near the bridge across from the Lodge at the State Park.

    Not sure what, if anything, a helmet cam might show. Could be great, or could be the inside if the helicopter.
