Thank-you, Kate. Eucalyptus is so flammable. I hope the powers that be can jump into action fast. Much appreciate your update on this.
Like that this was reported early. Thank you for posting the details. Sending best wishes for quick response to keep the backdoor backcountry safe and local damage to a minimum.
Just by the by, eucalyptus is no more flammable than just about anything else growing on the coast. But no matter, let’s hope they get the jump on this fast.
How do these fires in Big Sur keep happening? Lightning strikes, careless visitors??
This one was from a careless idiot, and the one before from a careless local. We have both in our midst.
Have the authorities located a suspect? Someone camping in the grove?
Are people doing this on purpose these days?
