This afternoon, there were two separate abandoned campfire along South Coast Ridge Rd – one at 1/4 mile in, one at 1/2. One at 12:30 pm, another at 3:30 pm. PLEASE be responsible! People, as well as precious wildlife and flora live here. Don’t destroy our home.
at 12:53 this afternoon, I got the followng email:
“Hey Kate…..just heard a dispatch for veg fire at Naciemento River an Bryson/Hisperia…..B3414, Engines 4694, 3482, 3483, 3477, D3442, Ques. crew 5…..got to be a mutual aid to there, that’s in M/C [Monterey County] area.”
“….sort of sounds like it might be back by copperhead, at the back side of Bryson/hysperia….”
“That have D3442 an WT50 staging right now at where ever there location is…….wonder if they’re getting a handle on it.”
And at 1:41 pm – “They just cancelled Ques. 5 an 3477.”
Fortunately, it looks like it was handled rather quickly, but it certainly is a heads-up for this season, and with the large influx of “guests,” this fire season could be a long one. We can only hope and pray, but it sure is early.
