As Our Area Spends a Night in Darkness Let Us Remember the Camp Fire Started on November 8th, 2018

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/25/2020 08:18 PM
Arnold, CA...While we look at the possibility of spending tonight and tomorrow night in darkness it might be of some benefit for us to remember that fire season is not over until our first real drenching rain. In November of 2018 most of us had already started to feel that fire season was over as temps were dropping and the calendar had entered November. It was a November fire that proved the worst fire in California history. The arrival of that winter's first drenching storm only a few days later only intensified the fact that fire seasons are only ended by real winter storms and not the calendar.

Make Your Home Ember Resistant & Get Your Wildfire Protection Tools At Bathroom Machineries In Murphys

Posted by: thepinetree on 10/19/2020 01:18 PM
Murphys, CA...DEA Bathroom Machineries in addition to all the classic & historic plumbing supplies they also have perfect, common sense, easy to deploy Wildfire protection tools. Tom Scheller showed us several options including the W.A.S.P. Fire protection system. The W.A.S.P. Wildfire Protection Kit installs either on your ridge ends or clips directly onto your gutter. It will fit on either OG or Facia gutter styles. The kit comes with 2-25 foot industrial quality hoses, two sprinkler heads, two gutter mounts, and two ridge end clips. Basically, you can quickly clip these onto your ridge or gutter using a piece of 3/4″ PVC (not supplied), turn them on, and have your roof soaked to help prevent ignition during fires. Depending on water pressure, these can have up to a 34′ radius.

The Fork Fire Now 1,736 Acres, 7% Contained in Rubicon Canyon

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/13/2020 02:03 PM
Raffetto, CA...The Fork Fire started in the Crystal Basin near Gerle Creek under critical fire weather conditions. Driven by east winds gusting 30-50 miles per hour, the fire grew rapidly to the west. It is burning in the Rubicon River drainage and the 2014 King Fire burn scar. The Rubicon canyon is in an extremely steep and remote area which makes firefighting difficult. This area of the King Fire had burned at high severity with nearly 100% tree mortality, leaving large snag patches of fire killed trees. The standing snags are a significant safety hazard, especially in strong winds. There is also a high concentration of dead and down trees creating a heavy fuel load, as well as dense post-fire regrowth of 4-6 foot tall brush.

Creek Fire Climbs to 175,893 Acres, Home & Business Structures Destroyed Numbers Climb

Posted by: thepinetree on 09/10/2020 09:29 AM
Shaver Lake, CA...Current Situation: Fresno County: The fire actively burned throughout the night with short range spotting and active runs. The critical fuels were completely consumed in portions of the fire. Active crown runs were observed in timber stands in the higher elevations. Madera County: A strong inversion is expected to continue moderate fire activity on the west side of the fire by holding smoke over the area which providing shade and a buffer from the gusty winds at higher elevations. Hand crews and equipment operators are making progress constructing containment line from the San Joaquin River northwest toward Castle Peak. Dozers continue to work to reduce vegetation and burnable materials in the vicinity of structures at Cascadel Woods and to the north along the western fire flank. The Red Flag Weather Warning has been extended through 8pm Wednesday; high temperatures, low humidity, and high winds will persist in the area, creating extreme fire conditions. The Madera County Sheriff continues to safely evacuate citizens, enforce evacuation notices, and maintain road closures near the southwestern fire front to protect the public. Please note the temporary evacuation center for Madera County has relocated to Mariposa County Fairgrounds.
