West Point Woman Who Started Willow Fire Arrested On Multiple Charges

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/29/2016 09:15 AM
San Andreas, CA...Hogan was driving her vehicle eastbound on Mountain Ranch Rd. For an unknown reason the right rear tire became flat and the rim was in contact with the roadway while she was driving. The rim was causing a shower of sparks that was igniting the grass shoulder of the roadway. A witness behind Hogan attempted to gain her attention however she would not stop her vehicle. The witness eventually drove around Hogan and used his vehicle to stop Hogan by blocking the roadway. He contacted Hogan who did not appear to know that her vehicle was disabled. Due to the fires, Hogan's vehicle was also catching fire. The witness pulled Hogan from the burning vehicle. After an investigation by CHP, Hogan was arrested for driving while under the influence of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended driver license. A Drug Recognition Expert determined that Hogan was under the influence of a Narcotic Analgesic and Cannabis at the time of the incident.

Mokelumne Wilderness Wildfire Being Managed for Resource Benefits

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/22/2016 07:48 PM
Bear Valley, CA...Firefighters from the Stanislaus National Forest are managing the Mokelumne Fire for multiple objectives including allowing fire to function in its natural role while also suppressing the fire where safe to do so. The Mokelumne Fire was caused by a lighting strike and started on August 19, 2016, in a remote area of the Mokelumne Wilderness on the Stanislaus National Forest. This slow-moving 147-acre fire is burning brush and trees in steep, rugged country with granite cliffs and outcroppings. This makes firefighting on the ground difficult and a concern for the safety of the firefighters. There are 34 personnel including one 10-person crew and a helicopter with the capacity to drop water currently assigned to this incident. Firefighters are using control strategies to manage the impacts and promote the ecological benefits.
