Sam Jones Fire – FHL

6:45 pm – forward progress stopped. (YAY!)

Since BEU listed this, I am wondering about the controlled burn I saw yesterday (See photos below)

”#SamJonesFire [update] on Fort Hunter Liggett (Monterey Co) now 250 acres.” this was posted approximately 5 pm. Also posted a bit earlier: “CAL FIRE assisting Fort Hunter Liggett with vegetation fire Sam Jones X Jolon Rd, Fort Hunter Liggett (Monterey Co) #SamJonesFire”
