It’s STEEP and the only access for dozers is mineral king. I have very personal experience dragging drip line and trash out of that particular area cleaning up marijuana grows.
Last fire in the area was the paradise in 1996 and it was to the south. No recorded fire history at the present location.
This fire is putting up a good smoke , in the park so limited access
All IA info for the Paradise, Colony, and any lightning holdovers managed by the team within the complex will be placed here.
Firewatch51 AM IR flight has Paradise at 2,531 acres and head is on top of Paradise Mtn.
EDIT Update; Colony is 483 acres. Slowly growing.
The paradise has finally cleared up and is starting to build some heat. AA15 has been overhead for a little while and 2 helitankers are inbound.
I’ve got it backwards the colony fire has clear air.
Colony is dead center and paradise is the buildup on the left edge of the picture.
Mandatory evacuations in place for Sequoia National Park.
Evacuation orders now for parts of Three Rivers
Southern Area Blue Team (Morales) Type 1, assigned to KNP Complex. In-brief on Teams at 1300 9/15 From South Ops News and Notes.
Link Broke- this one goes to the directory ez. also these are just the maps might find IAPs in here later
Someone can come up with an IAP for frequencies for Command and Airops? That would be appreciated.
Were using KNP Cmd but, it’s quite now. Changed to NIFC? I know these are assigned per incident on the fly/as they are requested and use many intenerate frequencies.
No IAP’s online from these Teams. Or…in another folder not under the incident?
they’re kinda running a shoe string operation, many days of IA. Team inbriefs today and things will become more organized
