92 Firefighters Battling 500 Acre Donnell Fire

Pinecrest, CA...Current Fire Situation: The Donnell Fire ignited at 5:49 p.m. Aug. 1, 2018 near Donnell Lake on Highway 108 east of Pinecrest. The fire has burned about 500 acres with active fire behavior and smoke outputs in two-foot high brush, timber litter and understory. The fire is burning to the northeast. The fire’s objectives includes firefighter and public safety; protection, maintenance and enhancement of natural and cultural resources. Firefighters are working to keep the fire north of the Middle Fork of the Stanislaus River, south of trail 19E06 and east of Dome Rock.




Cooperating Agencies: Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office, Tuolumne County Air Pollution Control District, Caltrans.

Fire Information: The Tuolumne County Sheriff announced evacuation advisories for Wagner Housing Track homes on Clarks Fork. Organizational and Forest Service campgrounds have been notified of the evacuation advisory in their area. We advise the public to avoid this area. Steep and rugged terrain would make escape difficult.

Weather conditions: Very dry fuel conditions will persist throughout the area and temperatures in excess of 100 degrees are expected to continue for the next several days. There are red flag warnings for winds. High winds, low relative humidity and a temperature inversion are making use of aircraft resources difficult.

Status
Acres Burned: 500
Cause: Under investigation
Date Started: Aug. 1, 2018 5:49 p.m.
Percent Contained: 0
Expected Containment: None at this time
Structures Threatened: 30


Resources
Hand Crews: 2 (Stanislaus Hotshots and El Cariso Hotshots, Cleveland NF)
Smokejumpers: 0
Engines: 2
Helicopters: 2
Air Tankers:
Other: 0
Total Personnel: 93

      It is a protected national forest can propabaly drop water only. If have every worked for forest service still some places restricted areas for chainsaws. Just in case you haven’t noticed pretty sure limited on resources.

      Correct thanks to Alan Gore California. .....the biggest time bomb we have ever seen.. talks about loss jobs and unrealistic laws. We folks will go down. While Moonyourmama chokes. On daddy’s suit tail. With old nags that support his sorry ass. With New-your- mommy’s vote repeated the problem.

          Yes fella, ma. The Indian took better care of this land then any libtard that would build a house with trees older than a family living in a forest. They manage the land better without a education. Hope that tree a foot from deck doesn’t die. Grow up the fires created by not just saving the wildlife,trees.. I will call horse*bleep*. Natural selection, reap what you sow. Manage this place. Fail with it. The answer not burying power lines. It is the dumbass folks that can’t manage it.
