Wildfire, SoMoCo – Turkey Fire

As of 3:40 pm, 2225 acres, 60% contained, forward motion stopped. Releasing aircraft.


2:30 pm – UPDATE: up to 600 acres. 5 tankers and dangerous rate of spread.

1:20 pm –  vegetation fire is approx. 100 acres with potential to 1,000

1:15 pm – All I have is a tweet moments ago from Cal Fire SLO, even BEU hasn’t tweeted about it yet, so not sure of exact location. I do have a mutual aid request to SLO which includes two tankers and air attack aircraft out of Paso. I will add more when I know more.

CAL FIRE/San Luis Obispo County Fire Department sending personnel and equipment to assist with a reported vegetation fire off Turkey Flat Road within southern Monterey County.

  1. Been up and down California the last 2 weeks and the smoke in the interior valleys has been terrible. Was just thinking this morning that with all this smoke in the air that it makes it difficult to see any new fires and my trusty nose is a bit out of commission. And then I read this…oh crap.
    Is this the Turkey Fire?


  2. Yes, Denise, the Turkey Fire outside of Parkfield at the Solar Farm near 46.
