Thank You Firefighters For Great Work on Angels Camp Fire!! ~ Bob Diehl

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/18/2017 02:50 PM
Angels Camp, CA...On Sunday, August 12 a grass fire broke out in a vacant lot near our home in old town Angels Camp, above Utica Park. As fire newbies, we were pretty scared. The flames were over six feet high and the crackling could be heard inside our house even though all the windows were closed. Our local firefighters were there on the spot, and prevented any damage to the homes nearby. Thank you all for your quick work and professionalism—we’re lucky to have you! ~Bob

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/17/2017 03:50 PM

It is approximately 1 mile south of the Bridalveil Campground east of Alder Creek drainage and west of Bridalveil Creek drainage, burning in Red fir. Fire behavior has been actively flanking and backing with some single and group tree torching. The fire is burning in heavy pockets of dead and down timber, reducing fuels buildup which increases forest resiliency. Projected fire growth is expected in the northeast and southeast flanks.
