Most recent fire hx for black mountain was 2016 or 2017 goose fire. Anyone know if it’s in that burn scar yet?
It might be just into that at the head or left flank, that fire burned both sides of the ridge around the radio tower.
They were losing tankers to a fire near Independence.
THat is the ORC-Coastal incident.
No it is not. It has to come over the top of Black mountain before it reaches the Goose
Looking through my pictures the goose fire burned on both sides of the ridge but not much over on to the south side, anyways this fire hasn’t made it even that far up the mountain.
I traveled down Hwy 99 and it had a good head and may plume later today. I was near the San Joaquin River bridge when I saws it.
