Almost crested the ridge and tankers dropping
Multiple tankers and helos on scene. Last report was 5 acres. Took ground crews quite a while to get in there. All call for WT. Dozer now on scene. Scan: 5 acres. Brush, timber. Big fuel break on top. No wind. Trying to get retardant around it. No structure threat. Best access is from unmarked road 2s08.
I’m listening to “Cal Fire Working Incidents - TCU” using the Scanner Radio app, you can listen to it by going to Cal Fire Working Incidents - TCU
Thank you for such detail info so fast!!
Retardant all the way around… Staying in the retardant line… Holding tankers… Helos still working… Per scanner
YW! We have a huge, well established FB group that covers Mariposa County and eastern madera county. Our admin team monitors the scanner @18 hours a day… Sometimes more. We also recently started a FB watch group for Northern Mariposa County on the Mariposa Tuolumne County line and raised money for people in the area to get scanners. That section is extremely remote.
They had to call the tankers back in because it jumped the retardant line. Calling for WT from TCU as mop up will be intensive. Some flames still in the interior
That area had a lot of bug kill. Lots of dead and down fuels. What’s not on the ground is is prime to Burn.
Looks like a good stop…Takes Cal fire and FS time to get in that area. IDK if there is an FS engine at Buck Meadows. Good job by all on the ground and in the air.
Wet line/hose lay around 100% of the fire. Forward progress stopped and contained.
As above… most likely committed all night for mopup.
Requests 2 additional WT immediate need and launch the type 1 chinook copter out of mariposa helibase. Looks like they getting a cross wind change on the cam. Long turn around for refilling WT’s.
Was totally all about the air show for quite a while until ground crews could get in. Yay for Columbia!
