Yosemite El Portal Fire Update. 4,198 Acres, 58% Contained, 1,360 Personnel

Posted by: thepinetree on 08/01/2014 12:49 PM
Yosemite, CA...Last night crews conducted burnout operations on the northwest flank of the fire; this tactic is used to slow the progression of the fire by starving it of fuels. Conditions were very favorable and the crews made considerable progress. On the lower portion of the fire, crews continued mopping up, securing the containment line, and removing trash and equipment no longer in use. The weather forecast calls for hot and dry conditions for the entire fire area today with a strong potential for spot fires outside the fire perimeter. Plenty of resources are in place to address this concern. Today burnout operations will continue as long as conditions are favorable. Crews will continue to mop up and secure the containment line. The evacuation that was in place in Foresta will be lifted at 3:00 P.M., and only residents will be allowed to enter the area. Complete details are enclosed....

Sonora, CA...On 07/31/2014 at approximately 0843 hours, Sonora CHP, Officer M. McDaniel, ID 19287, was in full uniform and driving a marked black and white CHP patrol vehicle.

The officer positioned the patrol vehicle to the rear of the Porsche which had its convertible top down.

All Aboard! Railtown 1897 Offers Excursion Train Rides & Live Music Over Labor Day Weekend

Posted by: Lea_Marie_C_Paar on 07/29/2014 10:57 AM
Jamestown, Ca. – To celebrate the holiday in rail-related style, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park (SHP) in Jamestown will offer popular excursion train rides all three days of the upcoming Labor Day weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, rides behind the famous “Movie Star Locomotive” Sierra No. 3 are available; then on Labor Day Monday, vintage diesel train rides are available for interested Park visitors. As another special treat, singer/banjoist James Nelson of the Black Irish Band will entertain guests all three days while performing live on the platform under the tulip tree. Tapping into America’s love affair with trains and westerns, the iconic Sierra No. 3 became known as the “Movie Star Locomotive” after starring in more than 100 Hollywood movies and television productions alongside world-famous celebrities beginning in the early 1900s. In addition to its impressive Hollywood film credentials, Sierra No. 3 is one of the oldest operating steam locomotives in the United States and Railtown 1897 SHP in Jamestown is home to one of just two remaining, fully intact and still functioning steam-era shortline railroad roundhouse complexes in the United States...

Yosemite El Portal Fire Now At 3,060 Acres, 19% Contained, 640 Personnel

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/29/2014 03:31 PM
Yosemite, CA....Last evening on the El Portal fire the night shift reported active fire until approximately 1:30 A.M. after which conditions settled down. Today’s areas of concern are concentrated on the northern portion of the fire as the fireline bumps into the burn perimeter of the 2009 Big Meadow Fire. Fire crews and aviation assets will continue to combat the fire which is seated in very steep, remote terrain. Vegetation in this area and throughout the state remains in critical, historic drought conditions. The Dark Hole fire, also being managed by CIIMT 5 remains at just over 500 acres as a smoldering, creeping fire in the understory. As threats from this fire are minimal fire resources have been largely concentrated on the El Portal...
