Willow Fire, 6/19/21, day 3

This bad boy just dropped on Willow. Looks like he is heading back to Paso, hopefully to refuel

From Park Management Company:

FIRM map from this am (this is becoming the old google earth fire maps). Thanks Kathy Wylie

There is a source for mapping that Mike Caplin reminded me of last night (to him, this morning to me) here:


From this link, he was able to map the fire at 4,000 acres last night at 11 pm. Of course, this is an unofficial size. We will have to wait for the USFS to make their official determination. Here is his map:

And here is a map of all the recent historical fires in the area that Paul Saffo did for us last night.

Here is one Paul did this am. Red is the most recent, orange is older.

At 5:30 am, a helicopter on its way to the fire flew over me. Inciweb is reporting what wildCAD reported last night, the fire is 2000 acres. IMC is setting up in King City, and there is some welcome cooling fog on the coast today. As is usual, I will be adding to this post throughout the day as information becomes available. I would also offer that I have an extensive list of fire-related links to the right that I have developed over the years.
