Fire near Ventana, 11/2/12

Next morning update: It was at the Coastlands, upper driveway, NOT across the highway as I report below. Way too close for comfort.
UPDATE; Martha Karstens just called a friend in the Coastlands (across the highway from the fire) and said they got it!!! Woohoo!!! Our Brigade rocks! Now, 2 aspirins and the bed that called to me an hour ago.
UPDATE: 10:15 PM, A LOCAL WALKED UP TO THE HIGHWAY AND REPORTS THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE ON TOP OF IT AND THE LOCAL IS NOT AS PANICKED AS HE WAS.

  1. So glad to hear it! We were listening to the sirens heading south and hoping for a fast knockdown!

  2. BSK, thanks to the scanner operator, blessed to read fire is contained and out with no injuries reported, so far – cause of the fire not specified..

  3. So glad to hear that they got it under control quickly. Scary time of the year .
