First Fire of the Season — West side of Highway 1 across from Plaskett Campground

Details still sketchy, but Big Sur Fire was able to get emergency access through Rat Creek and should be there shortly to make an accessment. Other resources are on the way. More when I have it.

1/4 of an acre, too wet to make a run, there was foggy all day at that spot on the bluffs above Jade Cove, most assuredly stupidity caused.

I spoke with PT 17 and they planned on babysitting until around 6 pm. Welcome to a holiday weekend in Big Sur!

Here is where it was, which is actually just north of Jade Cove, a few hundred yards or more south of Plaskett. If Plaskett Ridge Rd hadn’t been closed with a heavy duty gate, this most assuredly would have been up in the sun where it could have made a run for it, as my son pointed out.
