Chimney Fire, 8/31/16

Today is the last day I will be covering this fire, unless there is a flare up, as it is all but controlled, 75% as of yesterday, it hasn’t entered the Silver Peak Wilderness, and all Evacs have been lifted. HOlding at 46,344 acres, 85% contained and only 35 structures threatened.

Chimney Fire, 8/29/16

After practically no growth yesterday, it looks as if the fire became very active on the western flank and a bit north overnight. It is pushing right up to the Silver Peak Wilderness, with many dozer lines created to try and keep it out of the wilderness.

Soberanes Fire, Day 37, 8/27/16

“All,

The IC from the latest team, from Alaska, would like to know if the Big Sur folks would be interested in a meeting to let them know what the continuing plan is.
It is the same strategy as they are doing now….

Would you mind sending out an email and posting the question to see if there is any interest?

It would be a quick informal meeting.

Thanks,

Martha

Martha Karstens
Chief”

******************

From Steve Harper:

“This comes directly from Tassajara. I am not giving the name of the person it came from, but can attest to it comes from the top:
“It has been very confusing. The man who gave us the “absolutely no help” message, had seemed very supportive when at Tassajara, and also seemed very uncomfortable as he was giving us that new message. The day after that no message, 2 safety officers (or something) came to ZMC from the FS and asked if we needed anything. Yesterday they came back with the woman who helps to assign crews and they looked at our request for help to cut line. She said she will do her best to get us a crew for 2 days, which would be a big help. One “problem” it appears is that we have done so much prep and spent so much on equipment that they think we don’t need anything. Maybe this is true compared to others. My feeling is that the main thing that would be helpful to us is to have even one or two more people who have actually fought fire there when the fire comes. We have great crew, but very inexperienced.

These are just my thoughts and should not be taken as true. We are trying to decide on our strategy and I or someone will include you as we know. Thank you so much for your support.”

Steve suggests emailing SoberanesFire2016@gmail.com to express your concerns.

DAILY UPDATE

Fire Information Phone (831)204-0446
soberanesfire2016@gmail.com
http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4888/
http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents/incidentdetails/Index/1348

Incident: The Soberanes Fire was started by an Illegal campfire on the morning of July 22, 2016, in the Garrapta State Park. The fire is burning in areas of previous large fires including the Basin Complex in 2008 and the Marble-Cone Fire in 1977.
Location: Los Padres National Forest, Ventana Wilderness, Monterey County, CA
Agency Jurisdiction: CAL FIRE San Benito-Monterey Unit/Los Padres National Forest

Current Size: 91,543 acres (54,259 acres CA-LPF, 37,194 acres CAL FIRE)
Containment: 60% Cause: Illegal campfire Injuries: 1 fatality, 4 injuries
Structures Destroyed: 57 homes, 11 outbuildings Structures Threatened: 410
Current Resources: Crews: 22 Engines: 85 Helicopters: 12 Dozers: 19 Water Tenders: 14
Total Personnel: 1501

Incident Command: Alaska Interagency Incident Management Team, Tom Kurth Incident Commander. The incident is no longer in unified command with Cal Fire, many Cal Fire resources are still being utilized.

Fire Restrictions: Forest Order 05-07-16-15 Fire Use Restrictions – Level IV Fire Restrictions. This Order is effective from August 23, 2016, through the end of the official 2016 fire season.

Current Situation: Yesterday, a thick marine layer kept fire activity along the coastal area low. Weather stations positioned around the fire area continue to show significant differences in humidity between the lower and higher elevations. Interior portions of the fire continue to grow slowly. Similar fire behavior is expected today and no threats to fire containment lines are anticipated.

Additional structure protection and firing operation crews have arrived and are taking this time of slow fire growth to develop preparing for potential fire movement. Suppression line repair work continues on the northern perimeter of the fire.

Wilderness Tactics: To reduce the impacts associated with fire suppression activities in wilderness areas, fire managers and firefighting crews continue using Minimum Impact Suppression Tactics (MIST) as much as possible. The steep, rugged terrain of the Ventana Wilderness is inherently treacherous to firefighters. Most direct fireline is being constructed near the perimeter in areas that have been pretreated and supported by aircraft. The inaccessibility into the Ventana Wilderness along much of the fire’s east side continually requires patience, as well as slow and steady hard work from the crews, as they look for options to construct direct line.

US Forest Service Road and Trail Closures: A forest closure order has been implemented to close the trails and roads within the Los Padres National Forest, Monterey Ranger District pursuant to USC 551 and 36 CFR 261.50(a). The order prohibits going into or being upon National Forest System lands within the Soberanes Fire area. For a complete list of closures please visit: http://www.fs.usda.gov/lpnf . The following sites are open: Pfeiffer Beach Day Use, Mill Creek Day Use, Willow Creek Day Use, Sand Dollar Day Use, Kirk Creek Campground, Nacimiento Campground, Ponderosa Campground and Plaskett Creek Campground.

California State Park Closures: Point Sur Light Station State Historic Park is open and guided tours will resume today. Go to http://www.pointsur.org for more information. Portions of Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park including the McWay Falls trail have opened. All lands and trails east of the parking lot and the campground remain closed. The Big Sur Lodge is open, however, Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park Day Use and Campgrounds remain closed. Go to http://www.bigsurlodge.com for more information.

The following park units remain closed:· Andrew Molera State Park -All park lands closed to public entry; Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park – All park lands except the Big Sur Lodge closed to public entry; Garrapata State Park – All park lands east of Hwy 1 closed to public entry.
Evacuation Orders and Warnings: An evacuation ORDER remains in effect for Coast Ridge Rd. from mile marker 1.5 to Marble Peak at the end of the road. A WARNING remains for Tassajara Road from Carmel Valley Road to the Tassajara Hot Springs Zen Center. This area includes all roads that lead from the above described roads.

Donations: Local relief efforts to the fire victims have been provided by the Coast Property Owners Association (CPOA) and the Community Foundation for Monterey County. Donations can be made to the CPOA at Coast Property Owners Association, PO Box 59, Big Sur, CA 93920 or the Community Foundation for Monterey County, 2354 Garden Road, Monterey, CA 93940 (831)375-9712.

CURRENT SITUATION
Overnight, the fire behavior remained active, but cooler temperatures and higher relative humidity helped firefighters increase containment lines throughout the night. Today, anticipated onshore low-level flow will strengthen, with a deeper marine layer, leading to lower temperatures. The Hearst Castle and Hearst Castle Infrastructure remain threatened.
Threats remain with evacuation orders to Oak Shores, Christmas Cove, Cal Shasta, Bryson Hesperia and Lake San Antonio.
As with all evacuation orders and warnings, these are implemented for the safety of the public and firefighters. Fire personnel are working in extreme fire conditions around the clock to contain and control the fire. Please do your part to be prepared to evacuate by visiting http://www.readyforwildfire.org. Unified command with Fort Hunter Liggett and Los Padres
National Forest.

Evacuations: Evacuation orders were lifted for the communities of Tri-County, Cal Shasta, Rancho Del Lago, and South Shore
Village on Thursday, August 25, 2016 at 12:00 PM. Property owners and residents of the Tri-County, Cal-Shasta, Rancho Del Lago and South Shore Village Ranch Communities are asked to carry a government issued identification card, current utility bill, or other similar evidence showing an address within Tri-County, Cal-Shasta, Rancho Del Lago, and South Shore Village.
Evacuation orders remain in place for Christmas Cove, Oak Shores, North Shore Boat and Ski, Laguna Vista, Lake San Antonio, Sapaqua Valley, and Bryson Hesperia in both San Luis Obispo and Monterey Counties. Members of the general public are asked to avoid the Tri-County, Cal-Shasta, Rancho Del Lago, and South Shore Village area due to large numbers of fire resources in the area and to respect private property rights of these communities.

KATHE’S NOTE: After some confusion late Thursday, Aug. 25, (me getting a different report from a Cal Fire spokesman than my Tribune colleague was given a little earlier in the evening), Cal Fire officials confirmed that the evacuation warning remains in effect on San Simeon Creek Road, Van Gordon Creek Road, Keystone Mine Road and Red Mountain Road. I’ll check in a while to make sure that’s still the case.

Evacuation Centers:
Flamson Middle School Small Animals – Chimney Fire Animal Shelter can be contacted at (805)423-4934
2405 Spring Street Large Animals – Horse Emergency Evacuation Team (HEET) 805-466-7457

Chimney Fire, 8/25/16

5:30 pm – here is one of the operations maps for the Chimney Fire. I pulled it up because I got reports of a 20 acre “spot” fire in Division “J” as well as a report of the fire jumping the containment line in the north west corner. Looks like this may be the same incident, which may affect the southern coastal section of Monterey County.

image

11 am – Photo taken on FHL Training Area 28 looking South to the Chimney Fire, sent by Ray Martorano. He thinks it may be looking toward Waterdog Creek. “…I wish it was a wider pic so I could see what area I recognize….it sort of looks like looking towards waterdog from the bull canyon area….but never know been a while since been back in there.”

image

7 am – It is very smokey and I cannot see Cone Peak or Willow Creek. This fire is currently heading for the Silver Peak Wilderness Area in the South Coast of Big Sur, as you can see from the map below indicating the most current MODIS hits in the last 24 hours. One or two could be an anomaly, but this many? Not really …  And the map shows the Chimney Fire is really the more immediate threat to the South Coast. For example, it is less than 14 miles from my place. I’ll add more maps after morning coffee. Priorities, you know.

3:00 pm – According to one of my more reliable sources, this fire has entered the SE corner of FHL near Waterdog Creek. That is just above the finger of fire on the west just crossing into Monterey County.

image

If you want to do this yourself for a different part of the fire, go to the list of links to the right under 2016 Fire Season, then Current Wildland Fire Maps and click on that. You will have to search for the area you want, so, for example, if you are looking for Copperhead Road, search for the nearest area, such as Bryson Hesperia, CA.

1:45 pm – for those who have not seen this, here is a video taken by the Park Rangers Association of a boat navigating Nacimiento Lake with flames all around. It is short.

SITUATION
Overnight, fire behavior remained extreme. The fire continued to burn in steep terrain, along with very dry brush and timber. Once the morning inversion dissipates, winds will increase out of the south to southwest at 10MPH with gusts  around 20MPH. Temperatures and relative humidity will become wide spread, with temperatures in the 70’s on the western perimeter, to readings in the 90’s east of Rocky Butte Truck Trail. Upper level winds will turn out of north to northwest today, which will allow for the smoke aloft to drift towards the south-southeast of the Chimney Fire. Threats remain to Oak Shores, Christmas Cove, South Shore Village, Rancho Del Lago, Cal Shasta, Bryson Hesperia and Lake San Antonio. As with all evacuation orders and warnings, these are implemented for the safety of the public and firefighters. Please adhere to all orders, warnings, road closures and detours.
