Live Fire Training West Of Angels Camp Slated To Start March 28th

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/22/2017 06:45 PM
San Andreas, CA...The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) is conducting live fire training on the Whittle Vegetation Management Program (VMP) site, west of Angels Camp, along the east side of Fowler Peak Lookout. This training is designed to instruct and certify CAL FIRE employees in the proper use of a helitorch. A helitorch is a device, suspended underneath the helicopter, which dispenses ignited gelled fuel. Use of the helitorch on large fires, effectively removes fuel from areas surrounding a fire, to help control and prevent its spread.

Battalion Chief Brian Hukkanen Retires After 37 Years With EPFD

Posted by: thepinetree on 11/21/2016 11:17 AM
Arnold, CA...Yesterday marked an end of an era for the Ebbetts Pass Fire District. Battalion Chief Brian Hukkanen worked his last shift at EPFD Station One. He has retired after a 37 year career of helping our community. He started as a 15 year old cadet and has been with EPFD since 1979. After thousands of calls for fires, vehicle collisions, medical aids and more Battalion Chief Hukkanen will be moving on to a new phase in his life. Not to worry though as the Hukkanen name will still be well represented in our area as his sons Aaron and Kyle are both in uniform and working in the family business. Congratulations Brian, Thank You and you will leave large boots to fill.

Marshes Fire Reaches 45% Containment, One Way Traffic Controls In Place On Hwy 49

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/29/2016 01:23 PM
Coulterville, CA...Road Closures: Hwy. 49 between Hwy. 120 and the Tuolumne-Mariposa County line remains closed. Hwy. 49 opened for single-lane traffic with a pilot car at 8:00 o’clock this morning. Marshes Flat Road open to residents only. The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department is maintaining the roadblock. Current Situation: Firefighters held the area burned on the Marshes fire at 1000 acres since yesterday. Containment is increasing as crews continue building and reinforcing many miles of fire line across difficult terrain and through dense brush. Much of the fire area has not burned in over thirty years, resulting in a major buildup of dead vegetation. Firefighters must also continuously watch for rattlesnakes and yellow jackets which survived the flames in underground burrows, and are now out and moving through the burn. Weather continues to be hot and dry, with higher winds expected over the area today.
