  1. Thanks Gene, From the fireline - This fire was just about put out this morning by the weather but some spots picked up this afternoon around 14:00hrs with a mild wind event. On a sad note a recently retired firefighter lost his home and his mothers home next door...
    A anyhow thanks again I wish I could work on the blog but I am exhausted...

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
