Because of where it is, and the time of year, they’re probably going to let it burn and WFU it like the Indian Fire in YNP.


#3

If thats the case i hope the wind doesn’t get ahold of it


#4

I wonder what might happen with the expected Mono wind event that is predicted.


#5

There is alot of fire line in that area from the pier fire.


#6

It was starting to pick up a little steam at sunset similar to previous days.
Tomorrow will be a bit smokey in the Camp Nelson area.


#7

They have set up a portable camera to monitor the fire.

#8

I hope and pray that they get this one under control.


#9

This one will likely be managed like the slate, meadow, and hidden fires a few years ago. Punch in lines way off and slowly fire the line. Prescibed burn started by lightning😉


#10

It was fairly active through the night and getting more active now. They have plans to begin firing off lines when it hits their trigger point.


#11

Its crankin today.


#12

It will be at the ridge on the south western side of the Jacobsen fire soon. There has been a huge increase in fire activity in the last hour.


#13

Looks like a perfect WFU. “Cranking” and
" huge increase in activity" has taken a fire from upper third of slope to ridge top
( near) in 5 days. Epic mosaic. Perfect for the landscape.


#14

Its yet another good fire in an area that needs it bad.


#15

Looks like the portable cam that was set up has been taken down maybe. It had some good shots yesterday and last night… No history showing for today (10-19). Jordan Peak #7 shows nothing but smoke…


#16

The camera is back up…

#19

The mountaineer fire is also starting to show a little life. Just a small smoke east of the alder fire.
