Per camera looks like knockdown.

Sierra Incident. IC B1607. SJS on scene (3 BCs at scene, [see below for looong list is long]) plus SCU Engine 1661, 1664, 1684. SCU Local and Tac-6.

Cancelled: Dozer 1641 & 1644, E 1672, E 1663, E 1662, E1768. B1619, B1614. Air Attack 460 and both tankers.

Air attack ringdown: “8 acres, grass, slow rate of spread, a little activity on the right flank, underneath power lines. Left flank, lack of vegetation.”

Kept C106, crew landed, a few bucket drops.


It’s done. C106 returned to Alma 1645.

Edit 2: now PulsePoint comes across with the scoop:

“3412 Sierra Rd San Jose CA: 4A16, B1, B2, B5, CDF, CDFB1607, CDFC106, CMD21, CP, E 12, E17, E18, E19, E21, E23, E24, E31, E335, E34, E5, E612, E619, E624, E631, FSU2, FSU6, MED30, RING19, RM3, RM5, T2, TALK 17, TALK 3, TALK35, TIER 1, TIER2, U34A, U34B, WT17, WT18, WT21.”

Someone is a believer in the military adage, “Quantity has a quality all its own.” Good work.
