CAL FIRE Investigators Determine Cause of Colorado Fire
Monterey, CA – Fire investigators have determined the cause of the Colorado Fire in Palo Colorado Canyon (Monterey County) to be hot embers from a pile burning operation. High winds blew the embers onto nearby vegetation, which ignited the fire


Today there is no residents convoy scheduled, so far. Only opening is this afternoon for essential services. As soon as I am notified of the possibility, I will post.

From Mike Doig this AM: “The sun won’t reach the bottom of Rocky Creek for a while. The fire camp is gone but vehicles are still patrolling the roads. It’s clear enough this morning to really see the burn scar.”

  1. My son is in Bixby Canyon and running out of food! I wonder if going for food is an essential service?

  2. Kate,

    Just got reliable word that Westmere didn’t get hit too bad. It appears the sign is still standing. They had crew in yesterday making a wide fire break parallel to the highway.
