Fire Update...."Old Fire" Battle Enters Final Stages, Holding At 150 Acres, One Injury To Firefighter

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/16/2016 08:53 AM
Groveland, CA...The fire is currently 150 acres and burning through brushy vegetation and beetle-killed trees and is currently 70% contained. We do not anticipate fire movement or spread. Crews will work to secure and hold established lines and continue mop up operations. Areas with high tree mortality, particularly falling snags, are presenting increased firefighter safety risks and challenges with fire suppression. Four residential structures are threatened due to their proximity to the fires edge though the fire is burning away from them. One minor firefighter injury.No evacuations or road closures at this time.

Mokelumne Fire Remains At 655 Acres & Firefighters Achieve 85% Containment

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/11/2016 09:43 AM
Bear Valley, CA...The fire remains at 655 acres with minimal fire behavior and smoke production. Containment is at 85%. The fire edge is currently confined within natural barriers. Crews will secure and patrol current confinement lines while exercising Minimal Impact Suppression Techniques (M.I.S.T.), and maximizing the use of natural barriers. The helicopter will continue to help support crew efforts on the fire line. This fire is being managed to protect, maintain, and enhance resources while being allowed to function in its natural ecological role. No evacuations or closures have been issued at this time. No campgrounds along Highway 4 are currently impacted by smoke from the Mokelumne Fire. The public is advised to avoid the fire area due to hazardous conditions. Due to steep and inaccessible terrain, heat/smoke may still be present in the interior of the fires perimeter. We will continue to monitor the fire via aerial recons. Incident transitioned from a type 3 to a type 4 on August 6th, 2016. We will begin extracting crews from the fire line today.
