Wildfire – Lucia

8:30 pm – it looks as if the heavy, immediate use of aircraft was successful, as I am hearing the smoke is gone and things seem to have quieted down out there.

6:40 pm – IC believes, if aircraft can pummel it from the air, they should be able to hold it. They have 5 planes on it right now.

6:20 pm –


6: 15 pm-Arroyo Seco Gorge making it up to the ridgeline. This is a very remote area, which has a very long access time. Aircraft will be it for a while. Lucia IC requested a dozer to come in and open up a road for responding in units. LPF, BEU, and FHL responding.

LPF Engine 19 advising they cannot see entire fire, but it is running to the ridgeline. Requesting air resources to give better size up. And dozer to open up roads for access. This has potential to be a large fire, unless they can stop it from the air.
