Predictive Services Discussion:

Windy conditions will continue over portions of California, the Great
Basin and western Wyoming. Cooling temperatures and slightly higher
relative humidity will move into the northwest quarter of the country.
Thunderstorms, some dry, may develop again in southeastern Arizona,
western New Mexico and portions of the Rockies. In Alaska, conditions will
continue to warm with a chance of thunderstorms. The Southeast will see
widespread showers and thunderstorms this weekend.

NEWS: Returning fire engine crashes

Recordnet.com: Returning fire engine crashes:

Angora Fire strike team - Stockton fire
Returning fire engine crashes

STOCKTON - A team of four Stockton firefighters returning from the wildfire at Lake Tahoe crashed on Highway 50 when the brakes on their fire engine failed, officials said Friday. The captain, engineer and two firefighters were not injured.

Stockton fire Capt. Michael Lilienthal said the group owed their lives to engineer Don Marlow, who was driving when the crash took place about 6:45 p.m. Thursday.

"This easily could have been fatal for our firefighters," Lilienthal said. "You're talking a 35,000- or 40,000-pound engine."

The fire engine was traveling about 50 mph on windy roads outside Strawberry when Marlow discovered the brakes did not work, Lilienthal said. Marlow purposely crashed the engine into a mountain to stop its momentum.

An NBC news van was clipped by the engine, and a woman inside suffered minor injuries, Lilienthal said.

The engine that crashed belongs to the state and was on loan to Stockton for major disasters. In exchange, Stockton firefighters respond to fires like the Angora Fire, which continued burning Friday.

Marlow, Capt. Brian Jones and firefighters Steven Thienes and Ryan Peters had worked the fire since Monday, Lilienthal said.

Three other Stockton firefighters responded to the Angora Fire to lead strike teams, he said.

Wildfires change the landscape...

Whether you evacuated during the fire or stayed throughout the Fire, the fire has changed conditions around your home and in the community. Please be especially careful in this new environment.

Hazards...

Burned trees: Shallow roots systems have burned and standing dead trees (called snags) will be falling down, especially in high winds.

Ash pits: White ash on the ground may indicate deep pockets of hot ash where roots and ground vegetation have burned and may be continuing to burn below ground level.

Broken glass and sharp metal edges: When fire has burned through trash heaps, sheds, etc. glass is often broken and metal edges exposed. Children and pets should be carefully supervised to avoid these hazards.

Hazardous smoke: Smoldering piles may include plastics or other materials that produce toxins in the smoke. Please avoid breathing direct smoke from smoldering areas.

Retardant Cleanup...

The orange retardant used to protect homes and resources is non-toxic and actually has a fertilizing agent. When re-wetted it becomes slick. It can be cleaned up with water, but may require a low-pressure spray or scrubbing on windows and vehicles.

Sprinklers...

Sprinklers are important when fire is threatening your home. Winds from fire can carry embers for hundreds of yards and sometimes even miles when fire behavior is extreme. When evacuating during a fire, sprinklers can be left running in place on roofs and porches. After the wildfire threat is over, the sprinklers can be removed or left in place for ash and dust mitigation.

Updated: Fire southwest of Redding half contained - Fire near Clear Creek Road


A wildfire that threatened close to 100 homes in a subdivision between Clear Creek and Texas Springs roads was half contained at 6 p.m. today.

Full containment of the 200-acre Creek Fire is expected at midnight, said Doug Wenham, a state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman.

While the closure of Texas Springs Road was lifted about 5:30 p.m., he said, an evacuation order for neighborhoods south of the road was expected to remain in effect until 8 p.m.

Because of heavy equipment and firefighters on the roadway, Wenham said, Clear Creek Road probably will be closed throughout the night between Honeybee Road and Cloverdale Road."

InciWeb pulls Angora Fire Map offline

This map replaces the previous map posted that was deemed to informational for public consumption


CAL FIRE NEWS EDITOR: InciWeb pulled the map from public access I posted and commented on in a earlier post? Which is very ironic! at the time I posted the original map I commented that I was amazed that they were releasing such high quality working fire perimeter maps to the general public basically the same map as used in the ICP, and 209 showing divisions, dozers lines, containment, etc.

Well the map got pulled shortly thereafter and when this editor inquired with a very nice Inciweb person she explained that they were worried that such a map would confuse the public!


Oh us poor public when will we ever be trusted to read a map properly!

But the InciWeb person has been very nice and cooperative and has attempted to send me the map three times by e-mail but the file seems to be broken?
What was on that map anyhow?

And the very nice lady wants me to believe that the federal government computers cannot possibly send such
a large file as the original picture that had been posted? eh ok..

Now they have reposted a modified map that has been redone removing those confusing things like Divisions! and it is of much poorer quality and almost unreadable size.

InciWeb is relatively new and the nice people there may not realize their part in history and historical importance and that removing a document once posted like that should be a no no and is just bad net etiquette

Well whatever the reason we love InciWeb and very nice people work there.

The new one is here.

Any firefighters on the line and off send your ICP map photos, Pictures, Scoops, Green sheets, Announcements, Crew links e-mail to this link CAL FIRE NEWS and we will get them up here. Information is always a good thing!

The original map shown above has been pulled off-line by InciWeb

John Waters Jr. photo



A fire of unknown origin roared to life in the hills above Franz Valley School Road Monday, burning more than 45 acres, threatening few structures and rattling lots of nerves.

Crews were expected to have the fire fully contained by Wednesday morning.

“I saw the smoke above the hills there and it was a bit worrisome,” said Ray Breitenstein Tuesday. “Fortunately, it didn’t come over the hills this way, but for a while I recalled the 1964 fires that nearly came down into the valley here. That was really scary, so I’m glad they got a handle on this one.”

Late Monday, fire crews from several departments battled a brush fire west of Calistoga that, as of late Tuesday, had consumed more than 45 acres. Although the skies above Franz Valley School Road were clear by Tuesday afternoon, the blaze wasn’t dead, nor fully contained, according to Knights Valley Volunteer Fire Department firefighter Bud Pochini.

“I believe it’s nearly contained, but it won’t be fully contained until it stops sparking across the hand and dozer lines the fire crews have created around the fire,” Pochini said. “Right now, the fire keeps creeping along as the wind picks up little sparks and jumps them across the fire breaks.”

The fire began about 5:15 p.m. on Mountain Home Ranch Road near Petrified Forest Road, quickly burning about 20 acres, but by 9 p.m., the blaze had swallowed 35 acres, according to Tony Moriani from CalFire.

“We (Knights Valley volunteers) were stationed on the east side of the hills from the fire, waiting to see if it would continue to move this way,” Pochini said. “If it had, we would have been right in its path.”

Ironically, Pochini said, the Knights Valley firefighters would have had to protect the home of one of its own had the wind shifted easterly.

We were mostly up by Augie Grube’s, our fire chief’s house,” Pochini said. “If the fire had come over the crest there his property could have been right in its path.”

That scenario never happened. At least one home was threatened, Pochini said.

“One of the CalFire crew told us there was a home directly in the path of the fire at one point,” said Pochini, a 16-year firefighting veteran. “It was bearing down on the house so fire crews broke into it to try and save it, but the wind shifted and their efforts were, in the end, not needed there.”

When fire crews break into homes to save them they focus on taking curtains from the windows and removing furniture from the walls closest to where they anticipate the fire will engage the home. They’ll also pull back any carpeting.

“The reason for that is that temperatures inside the house closest to the fire can get so hot the curtains, furniture and carpeting will spontaneously combust and the whole house could be lost,” he said.

There was another factor that threatened that home.

“They had brush and manzanita trees growing right up against the house,” Pochini said. “There was absolutely no defensible space between the brush and the home. If the winds had not shifted that house could have been completely lost. People don’t realize how important creating a defensible space around your home is when you live in the country. I hope they’ll think about that now.”

As the fire burned in timberlands, California Highway Patrol crews blocked off access to Petrified Forest and Franz Valley School roads, Moriani said, but there were no calls for voluntary evacuations of any residents in the area.

Numerous units from CalFire, Napa County Fire and Sonoma County fire agencies responded to the fire, including 13 engines, three bulldozers and four water tenders.

By 8 p.m. Napa County Fire crews stationed at the Big Tree Road station on Highway 128 were reporting the fire had expanded to between 30-40 acres at this time.

“It was spectacular,” Pochini said. “The guys on the other side of the hill were telling us that they had never seen flames so tall. Flames totally engulfed 150 pines, and the flames were about 100 feet higher than that, making columns of flames 250 feet high.”

By 9 p.m. Monday the night of the fire, Moriani said, there was no indication of what caused the fire.
