  1. Kate,

    You must be picking up more info on FB, because twitter has nothing to disclose for this one.

  3. We watched the fire from our ridge in Mid Valley. It sprang up so quick. Fortunately, we saw the spotter plane as we were calling 911. Soon thereafter were two helicopter water drops followed by retardant from a small plane and the spotter plane and more helicopters checking out the scene. Quickly put out. Great job. It was so close to two houses behave not yet heard what started the fire.


  4. Maybe the rapid response is related to the 2016 Sobranes cost [250,000,000 dollars].

    Was also musing about how much an illegal campfire fine of $10,000 would raise. I remember a littering fine in the high hundreds…


  5. Kate, OASN….CVR…in depth…
