Was reported to me as at Coast Gallery, and only 10×10′ spot. Now how did that get started? I’ve been in town south, so a tad slow on this, but windy as heck up here at Peidras Blancas.

Vegetation Fire in Prunedale

4:30 pm update – 1 and 1/2 acres, reporting it is under control now and mop up efforts underway. 

3:15 pm

Fire crews battle vegetation fire in Prunedale

CalFire confirms crews are trying to put out a half acre fire near Highway 156 and McGuffie Road in Prunedale.

I have been unable to locate anything further. Like I said, Fire Season has started, if it ever ended.

Fire Season starts In March this year

•March 29, 2015 • 3 Comments

This afternoon, there were two separate abandoned campfire along South Coast Ridge Rd – one at 1/4 mile in, one at 1/2. One at 12:30 pm, another at 3:30 pm. PLEASE be responsible! People, as well as precious wildlife and flora live here. Don’t destroy our home.

at 12:53 this afternoon, I got the followng email:

“Hey Kate…..just heard a dispatch for veg fire at Naciemento River an Bryson/Hisperia…..B3414, Engines 4694, 3482, 3483, 3477, D3442, Ques. crew 5…..got to be a mutual aid to there, that’s in M/C [Monterey County] area.”

“….sort of sounds like it might be back by copperhead, at the back side of Bryson/hysperia….”

“That have D3442 an WT50 staging right now at where ever there location is…….wonder if they’re getting a handle on it.”

And at 1:41 pm – “They just cancelled Ques. 5 an 3477.”

Fortunately, it looks like it was handled rather quickly, but it certainly is a heads-up for this season, and with the large influx of “guests,” this fire season could be a long one. We can only hope and pray, but it sure is early.
