Fire at FHL

Word from several people of a large fire, 2500 acres, in Stoney Valley with no containment as of 10:30 pm. I can smell it from here.

There have been war games going on for the past two days, and one source said there have been a number of small fires, but that the FHL FD has been able to contain them rapidly. Not so this one.

One local was stopped at the gate in Jolon, while trying to get home at 9:30 pm, and not allowed to pass through, as the fire is interfering with Nasty-Fergy Rd.

I am having intermittent internet and email, but my phone seems to be working fine, just can’t hear it ring unless I am sitting on top of it.

The smell of smoke up here is quite strong. It is now midnight, and I will be getting some sleep while I can. I will update in the am, internet and other communications allowing. If I can’t, I’ll see if Mike can cover for me.

  1. I am so sorry, prayers are coming from Capitola to all of them.

  2. Looks like the fire was very active overnight. MODIS shows it bumping NF and MIssion Rds. near base headquarters around 3:00 this morning.

  3. hope they get it handled… thinking of you and all involved.

  4. Trying to update Stoney Fire. Will continue to do so. Extremely smoky up here early this am. I’ve been up since 5:30 trying to get a post up, as well as get updated acreage.

  5. God bless you and home, keep us posted but most of all stay okay.

  6. Stay safe and thank you for all you do!

  7. Somehow a reference to War Games sparking this fire?
