Wildfire on FHL

8 pm – The fire in the training area near the San Miguelito Loop is 100% contained and will be monitored all evening. A total of 450 acres burned. The Los Padres and CalFire units have been released.

At about 3:30 pm FHL reports: “The fire in the FHL training area near the San Miguelito Loop is expected to be fully contained later this evening, with a total of 200 acres burned. Smoke may linger for a couple more days, according to Emergency Services.”

And then there was this:

@LosPadresNF @VentanaHC firefighters assisted with #NacimientoFire today on Fort Hunter Liggett. Shifty NE winds caused some challenging spot fires but forward progress was halted at 450 acres.

From FHL : “A large fire off the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road by the San Miguelito Loop is being tended by engines from FHL, Los Padres National Forest, and CalFire. It was reported sometime before 1 p.m. It is not affecting traffic on the Nacimiento-Fergusson Road at this time (1:20 p.m., Oct. 2).” [ed note. I removed the originally reported 700-800 acres, as it appears FHL later removed it as well.)
